The second annual East Metro Atlanta Home and Garden Expo will be held on Saturday, April 22, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Georgia International Horse Park in Conyers.
The expo, which is pet friendly, offers activities for the entire family including presentations by home improvement and landscaping experts, exhibits, a plant section, and children’s crafts provided by Home Depot and Habitat for Humanity and face painting and inflatables.
More than 4,000 people attended last year’s event and crowds are expected to return this year, organizers say.
One of the biggest attractions is Georgia gardener Walter Reeves, who will present onstage at 11 a.m. Reeves offers advice on WSB’s Lawn and Garden Show, Atlanta’s best source of weekly gardening information. He also writes a popular weekly column of garden tips in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Living Section, has hosted PBS’ Gardening in Georgia television show, and is the author of several books.
“We are excited to bring a fun-filled event like this to our community and are thrilled with the diversity of exhibitors and assortment of activities that we’ll have this year,” said Allie Young, publisher and owner of eMetro Times, which is hosting the expo.
Several local businesses will be represented at the expo.
