The Oak Harbor Garden Club will be presenting “In Praise of Prose,” an educational gardening show this Friday and Saturday, April 28-29 at United Methodist Church.

The show is free and open to the public and will feature exhibits named for various books, said garden club member Sally Karg. Exhibits will include topics such as how spiders in the garden control pests, utilizing coffee grounds and a particularly pesky pest that’s attacking cherry orchards.

There will also be free materials for visitors to take home.

The show is open 1-4 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The church is located at 1050 SE Ireland St. in Oak Harbor.
