     The Sunbelt Ag Expo in Colquitt Georgia is viewed by many as North America’s premier farm show. It attracts upwards of 100,000 visitors annually from all over the country. Part of the goal of the Sunbelt Expo is to offer educational programming for participants and many seminars are presented for farmers on agricultural topics.  People from all walks of life attend the Sunbelt Expo farm show and adding a home and garden aspect would strengthen the draw for non-farmers and/or farm families. In 2008 the Executive Director of the Sunbelt Agricultural Expo asked if the University of Georgia Master Gardener State Coordinator could involve Master Gardeners and Extension Agents from around the region to provide horticulture seminars. The Agent in Dougherty County was asked to coordinate homeowner educational seminars on landscape and other home horticulture topics.  In the ensuing years the seminar series has educated 5,250 people and their feedback from surveys indicated that the participants learned something new, found the presentations helpful, and enjoyed the hands­- on demonstrations.
