Hundreds of garden enthusiasts are expected to gather at Orange County's "Great Park" on Saturday, Sept. 17, as a six-ton, 25-foot-wide Jacaranda tree is lowered into the ground by crane to commemorate the launch of a five-year $750,000 donation from ScottsMiracle-Gro, according to a news release distributed by the Orange County Great Park Corporation. The park's agricultural programs will receive $500,000 in financial support and $250,000 in products. The tree planting and check presentation take place before the first of five fall garden workshops offered in cooperation with the University of California Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners of Orange County.
