We don’t want to scare you, but fall is almost here.
If you’re not really excited about the onset of colder weather and the end of summer recreation, that’s okay.
Say goodbye to the garden in style and get into the spirit of fall during this weekend’s Scarecrows in the Garden.
It’s an annual fundraiser for the Northern Plains Botanical Garden in North Fargo.
You can buy pumpkins, fall decorations, and botanical supplies, all made from what they grow there.
The scarecrows are made by local artists, businesses, and nonprofits, and they’re also for sale.
You can get food, listen to live music, and take family portraits in the beautiful gardens, which are currently in late-season splendor.
And all sales go to support the Botanical Garden, which is mostly run by volunteers, and which is currently developing the new Japanese Garden section.
Barbara Villella, from the Northern Plains Botanic Garden Society, joined the morning show to chat with Emily Welker about celebrating the beauty of the garden just as we have to say goodbye for the year and begin to dream of what awaits us in the spring.
