Athens — A big weekend for Keep Athens Beautiful will wrap up Saturday with the annual Home & Garden Show.

The show will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cain Center in Athens. Admission is free.

Information regarding remodeling your home, landscaping your yard and living a more healthy life will be offered, and mini-workshops will be held covering topics including organic gardening, container gardening and improving your curb appeal.

“We’re anticipating a really nice crowd,” KAB Executive Director Carol Morton said. “It’s always a popular event because of the topic, and we'll have a lot of different vendors there once again.”

Rebecca Miller, a Master Gardner who co-hosts “Living Naturally First” on WBAP radio, will host a mini-workshop on organic gardening beginning at 10:30 a.m. Miller was the featured speaker at KAB’s “Organically Speaking” event held Thursday.
