Folks checked out the Spring Gardening Extravaganza hosted at the Coppertop Church Saturday to get advice and tips from experts about preparations for the season.

The program is presented by St. Louis County Extension and University of Minnesota-St. Louis County Master Gardeners.

This year's theme was focused on gardening for a healthier lifestyle and gardening for a healthier environment.

"Research says that gardening will actually help improve physical and mental health and it also can contribute to eliminating or mitigating some of the climate change effects that we have,” Bob Olen, the organizer of the Spring Gardening Extravaganza, said.

Experts say the gardening growing season is looking good this year because there’s plenty of moisture on the ground. And with the temperature warming up soon, gardeners will soon be able to take advantage of the season.

Expert growers offered advice on a variety of gardening topics, including producing fruits and vegetables and sustainable flower gardening and pollinator plants.
