Home & Garden show opens at Holtsville Ecology Site this weekend

Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro is inviting all residents to attend the Annual Brookhaven Town Home & Garden Show, benefiting the Holtsville Ecology Site, this weekend.

The event, which will be open March 25-26 and April 1-2, will feature vendor exhibits including: flowers, landscaping, fencing, stonework, outdoor fireplaces, siding, windows, awnings, gutters, garden centers, solar and more. In addition, with paid admission, visitors can participate in free educational workshops and hands-on classes for children. Seminar topics include composting, organic tree care, flower arranging, herbs and interior design; kids’ workshops include recycling and water conservation crafts, gardening fun and book readings with a local children’s author. Click here for a comprehensive schedule of seminars; classes and workshops are subject to change.

“After a long winter, homeowners are always anxious to learn unique and innovative ways to beautify their properties this spring,” Superintendent Losquadro said. “I hope families will come out to view the wide variety of home improvement ideas our local vendors will have on display-from replacing walkways and getting more creative with landscape design to building outdoor fireplaces and enhancing outdoor living space.”

The show will run March 25-26 and April 1-2, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The cost of admission is $6 for adults; children 16 and under are free. Parking is free, as is the opportunity to walk through the Animal Preserve, home to more than 100 injured or non-releasable wild and farm animals, which will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Click here for a coupon for $1 off adult admission.

“All proceeds from this event will be used to benefit the Holtsville Ecology Site, one of our Town’s hidden gems,” Losquadro continued. “Over the years, so many families have enjoyed and appreciated all the Ecology Site has to offer. Investing the proceeds from this event directly back into the Ecology Site will help to ensure there is adequate funding to support its continued operations.”
