ISU’s Garden Spring Festival looks set to be a success this weekend

The Illinois State University Horticulture Fall Festival, “Respecting the Rainbow – Respecting People, Plants and Their Relationships” was successfully completed last weekend.

The event featured a variety of activities and attractions for participants, such as throwing rotten food, glass-throwing hunting, hydrates and cultural plantations, titled “World Tree” and “Garden Spirits.”

Exhibitions included preliminary tours of the University of Illinois by naturalists, plant sensory gardens, Illinois Extension Master Gardeners, Central Illinois Beekeepers Association, Ecological Action Center, Regular Public Library and Sibili Honey. The exhibitors were in the booth to talk to the audience and teach new things.

The festival was full of glass ornaments created by artist Joy Dlard, especially for those who come hunting and enjoying events. If the audience finds one of the glass ornaments hidden in the plant, they are allowed to take it home with them.

“People [were] It’s constantly coming in and it’s good, it’s better for us to accommodate, ”said Jessica Chambers, director of the Horticulture Center. We hid 40 mirrors, and the audience loved it, I think people spent a lot of time looking for those jewelry. Everyone loves Tom Kingry’s sculptures.
