It is that time of year again. The Tampa Bay Wholesale Growers Spring Expo is right around the corner. The show opens on Friday Feb. 25, 2011. Check out what is new at the local nurseries. In an age where everthing is done electronically or by mobile device it is nice to go and put a face with a name and shake a hand. Along with the Expo is the booth auction. Vendors donate their entire booth and allied members donate items to be auctioned off on Saturday at 1:00 pm. Proceeds from the Tampa Spring Expo are pledged to SHARE's FNGLA Endowed Research Fund at the University of FL and to educational Programs of the Hillsborough County Cooperative Extension Service Horticultural Programs. The Tampa Bay Wholesale Growers has contributed over $50,000 to the FNGLA Endowed Research Fund collected from this auction and is the second largest contributor behind FNGLA.
