Bonneville County's Master Gardener program is putting on a plant promotion fundraiser. A large variety of locally grown plants will be available for purchase from houseplants to vegetable garden starters. Lena Allen, a board member for the Bonneville County Master Gardner program says locally grown plants also come with an advantage over store-bought ones.

"That way we are giving the community really good plants to start with because sometimes when you go to a nursery or home depot [etc.] you're just getting whatever they grow for the whole country and that does not mean it's the best for here," Allen said.

If you are interested in gardening or getting some nice plants, the event will take place this Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon at the Bonneville County Extension Center in Idaho Falls, at the south entrance.
