Starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday, members of the Kodiak Garden Club arrive, coffee in hand, at the Baranof Park covered ice ring. They start by spreading blue tarps on the floor (to protect from dirt spilling out of containers) and then begin the process of arranging hundreds of potted flowers, vegeta...
