"Green Hearts"
February 12, 2011

"Green Hearts" is a gathering of Green-Hearted (and -Minded) folks in the depth of an Alaskan winter who can't wait for spring!

The Second Annual Valley Arts Alliance GREEN HEARTS event was held Saturday, February 12, at the Mat-Su College Greenhouse at Snodgrass Hall, from noon until 4pm.

Representatives from the Mat-Su College, the University of Alaska Anchorage, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the Alaska Pacific University, as well as representatives from the Valley Garden Club, the North Root Garden Club, the Mat-Su Master Gardeners, the Rock Garden Society, the Future Farmers of America, and the Alaska Botanical Garden, were present to share their knowledge of gardening.

The Alaska Wild Bird Rehab Center displayed several wild birds, and local artists displayed garden related art.

Throughout the day local musicians entertained everyone, making this a wonderful spring-like day!
