Northwest Flower & Garden Show

Funky Junk


Here at Funky Junk, High School Horticulture students create unique garden displays.  Part of what makes this different is the heavy emphasis on recycled materials and found objects, with the exception of the plants.

Come see the imagination and creativity of our local high school students.  I bet you’ll even learn a thing or two about ways to make an impact on your own back yard and community.
