t CAPE GAZETTE. Tuesday, October 10 - Thursday, October 12, 2006 - 23 Ireland to be centerpeice at Philadelphia Flower Show The story of Tir-Na-nOg, the land of the young, will be told amid a chorus of Celtic gardens, music and entertainment at the 2007 Flower Show, set for March 4-11 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Show producers have teamed up with sponsor Tourism Ireland and garden creators to present Legends of Ireland. "Visitors will enjoy a huge Irish spectrum," said Chris Woods, guest landscape designer for the show. "They'll see a weaving of Ireland's long history of gardens, arts and crafts." A "living archway" fragrant with flowers, ferns and artfully woven tree limbs will welcome visitors to the Ealain Wood, where mythical creatures will roam under giant trees to the ethereal sounds of flutes and harps. As the Irish mist lifts from the Wood edge, visitors will behold a mag- nificent courtyard, The Knot Garden, composed of crystals and flowers, will shim- mer in the light and be flanked by two 40-foot waterways with spiral fountains and artistic Celtic ban- hers. The formal setting will pro- vide a grand stage for the Castle of the Emerald Kingdom. This massive estate features a tiered garden, turrets, towers and ancient stonework. Its interior will serve as a stage for performances of traditional Irish music, step dancing, singing and stories throughout the show week. Entertainment listings will be posted daily On www.theflower- show.com. Thousands of orchids, bulbs, topiary, alpine plants and exotic species will be on display in one of the nation's most impressive horticultural competitions. In this interactive area, known as It's Your Garden, activities will invite visitors to compare their favorite entries with those of the judges. The Gardeners Studio, present- ed by Suburu of America Inc., will host daily how-to demonstra- tionsby local experts# Along the Grand Hall Concourse, lively gardening demonstrations and lectures as well as culinary demonstrations by celebrity authors, television personalities and chefs. The Irish influence will be felt throughout the week in a number of presentations by great garden- ers and chefs of Ireland. A complete schedule of events will be available online in January.

"Biodiesel is a domestic, val- ue-added agricultural product of- fering exciting opportunities for investment and wealth creation in rural America," said Tom Dorr, under secretary, USDA Rural De- velopment. "Delaware's first biodiesel plant sets the First State on the leading edge of helping America reduce its dependency on foreign oil, strengthening na- tional security and empowering rural America." After the ceremony, Jeff Allen, president of the Delaware Soy- bean Board said, "I've used biodiesel blends on the family farm for several years now. In the beginning, I did it because I thought it would help the soybean industry nationally by building the demand for soybean oil. Now, with Mid-Atlantic Biodiesel open, I will be able to watch how using biodiesel blends made from local, Delaware soybeans will help our own farm. I'm looking forward to getting that first load of biodiesel when I know that I'm actually burning my own beans." The Governor has provided her support of research, education and promotional programs, part- nering with Delaware's soybean growers and the Delaware De- farmers and individuals to use the fuel. She was honored by the Na- tional Biodiesel Board, the Amer- broad-reaching initiatives to in- crease the use and availability of the fuel in the state. capegazette.com Grizzl s is Your Or anic Gardenin Source ZZLY'S 't,II r .
