FloraFEST is the annual fundraiser for the maintenance and operation of the Chihuahuan Desert Gardens and is the largest sale of its kind in the region.
Shoppers can purchase native and desert-adapted plants and visit with local Master Gardeners and other plant experts for advice on how to care for their plants at home.
Most of the plants sold at FloraFEST are not available at local nurseries or retailers. Activities include a guest lecturer, children’s coloring contest and terrarium workshop.
The UTEP Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens sponsor the event at the museum, at the corner of University Avenue and Wiggins Road on the UTEP campus.
April 23, 24 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
