Demonstrations and Displays
In addition to an opportunity to view some of the premier gardens in Southlake, SPIN Into SPING traditionally strives to provide tour participants with information and understanding of responsible gardening related practices. To achieve this goal, Tarrant County Master Gardener’s will be in each garden to answer questions. Experts on related topics such as composting, water wells, and wildlife rehabilitation will be also be on hand. At 1:00 P.M. on the day of the tour, Dr. Ray Chancellor, chairman of the Southlake Ornithological Society will be in his garden to speak and answer questions on “Creating a Backyard Bird Habitat”.
