For nearly three decades the Clark Public Utilities Home & Garden Idea Fair has been a springtime tradition. Even though this year’s Clark Public Utilities Home & Garden Idea Fair has been canceled, home improvement season has not. With many people spending more time at home, now is a great time to get started planning. 

The 2020 “virtual” Home & Garden Idea Fair is a resource for connecting you to local contractors and suppliers for your project needs. Many local vendors and contractors have implemented protocols that allow you to safely interact and do business with them.

Gardening & Landscaping
Home & Garden Idea Fair sponsor Washington Association of Landscape Professionals with their member businesses combine natural beauty with outdoor living to create breathtaking displays. A water feature curved around a timber-framed gazebo and lush foliage can turn your backyard into a private oasis. Whether you have acres or just a small patio to work with, the landscape showcase has something for everyone. Check out these landscaping showcase highlights to see some of the best work of the region’s most talented landscape designers presented at last year’s show. If gardening is your passion, get tips and new ideas for planting, growing, and canning here. Whether you have a garden already or just want to learn about growing a salad garden in a bowl, local plant vendors are happy to help.

Farmer’s Market
The Home & Garden Idea Fair hosts a collection of vendors featuring fresh, unique seasonal produce, nutritious food, and handmade or repurposed crafts primarily from neighboring farms, artisans and small businesses throughout the region.  Find the full list of local partners and exhibitors here.

Food Drive and Donations
A hallmark of the Clark Public Utilities Home & Garden Idea Fair is the food drive to support the Clark County Food Bank and cash donations to help Operation Warm Heart, a program providing home heating grants to families in financial crisis. You can still have an impact by making a financial contribution online. Also check out the Community Partners page for more knowledge, volunteer opportunities, and connections.
