The Late Show Gardens wishes to thank the incredible designers, speakers and vendors who made our inaugural garden show so successful.

We also thank you, the attendees, who came to learn about issues of sustainability, climate change, drought, and renewable resources – who were part of putting our name on the map in the garden show circles. As one designer so eloquently urged us in her garden, “Be the change you want to see.” Mahatma Ghandi.
