Fall Open House and Plant Sale – Kanapaha Botanical Gardens – Gainesville, Florida
On October 10 and 11, 2009, the Fall Open House and Plant Sale at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens in Gainesville, Florida, celebrated its 14th year. The event featured the Gainesville Orchid Society‘s annual show, and more than 40 vendors were on hand to sell various plants and gardening supplies. As always, Kanapaha Botanical Gardens opened its grounds for free for this event.
Kanapaha Botanical Gardens was founded in October 1987. Their Open House each year at this time is its way of celebrating its birthday with the community at large.
