STILLWATER, Okla. – Gardening enthusiasts are well aware of the importance of water in their gardens and landscapes. Visitors to the 9th Annual Summer GardenFest at the Botanic Garden at Oklahoma State University will be asking themselves “WATER You Doing for the Landscape?”

Kim Rebek, host of the popular television program Oklahoma Gardening, said Summer GardenFest, will focus on wise use of water in the garden. GardenFest will take place June 12 and events begin at 10 a.m. The Botanic Garden at OSU is located at 3425 W. Virginia.

David Hillock, OSU Cooperative Extension consumer horticulturist, also will be on hand to share information regarding xeriscape gardening. Children of all ages will have fun at the Children’s Gardening Activity Booth that will be run by the Botanic Garden Ambassadors.

“Following Gustavson’s keynote address, we’ll have a variety of water-related garden activities and demonstrations through the gardens,” Rebek said. “Cody Whittenburg, who is with the City of Stillwater, will be on hand to present a hands-on rain barrel construction workshop, with the help of Sharla Lovern, OSU Cooperative Extension research engineer.”

The 9th Annual Summer GardenFest is free and open to the public, however, donations are appreciated. 

In the event of inclement weather, some outdoor activities will be cancelled. Gustavson’s keynote address and select activities will take place indoors in the Educational Center. If rain is present early in the morning, please call 405-744-5404 for a recorded message pertaining to the cancellation of outdoor events.
