Submissions must include all information requested; incomplete submissions may not be published. If contact info isn't provided, we will include the first name and email of the submitting party.

Your event will still be added to our online community calendar if you miss the magazine deadline.

Although we try our best to include all submitted event items in the magazine, due to space issues, we cannot guarantee that all events will be published. Each group is allowed 2 event listings in each issue of the magazine unless space allows for additional events.

Nonprofit groups, such as garden clubs, community organizations and societies, can submit horticulture, gardening, nature or outdoor-related events. We do not publish events of for-profit businesses unless the event benefits a nonprofit.
