The fair was the first sponsored jointly by the Garden Center of Greater Cleveland and the Cleveland Public Schools garden program. There are three photos. The first is the ribbon-cutting opening ceremony which was attended by Ohio governor, James A. Rhodes, Cleveland Mayor, Ralph S. Locher, among others. The second photo features Michael Riley and his prize-winning rabbit caricature made out of vegetables. In the third photo Cathy Moltz dons a hat made from real flowers.
