After a one-year hiatus, the once annual Richfield Home & Garden Expo returns to town from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Feb. 16 at Richfield High School.
Richfield Visions, Inc., a local group that puts on the event each year, decided to take the one year break after low attendance at the 2011 show.
This year's event boasts more than 50 home improvement professionals will be present to answer questions and give ideas. There will also be how-to demonstrations on eco-gardening, container gardening, tree care and tree preservation.
Of course, representatives from the City of Richfield offices will be present to talk about housing, inspections, building codes and ordinances. There will also be a drawing for a new gas grill.
The event is chaired community member Jon Bjostad. In the future, the event will continue to be every other year to maximize turnout.
