2017 Capital Region Fling Overview

The Fling, recently described as summer camp for gardeners, is over but we all get to relive the fun through our blog posts. Much has been written about the Fling on blog posts and in our public Facebook group. I’ve organized this by day and added a few of the shout-out’s from Facebook.
