Knox County Public Library to Host Garden Heritage Festival in Krutch Park
Click here for the Knox County LibraryMarch 5, 2007 - The Knox County Public Library is proud to host the first annual Garden Heritage Festival: A Celebration of Our Land. The Festival, which will take place at the East Tennessee History Center and Krutch Park on Saturday, March 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Festival will look at the land from many perspectives - through stories, through the eyes of the farmers who work directly with our land, through involvement with our own pieces of land, which we care for and garden, and through the food we harvest from it.

Featured speakers include Judy Lowe, Bill Landry, Neal Denton, and the Garden Girls.

Throughout the day, there will be lectures on the Tennessee biosphere, the changing look of our area throughout the last century, and an overview of native plants. There will be a close look at gardening: apartment gardening, pot gardens, home landscaping, and community gardens. There will be talks on plant care and demonstrations on stonework and path making, cooking, and one-pot gardens.

There will also be a book sale featuring books from the Friends of the Library and Carpe Librum, a garden sale from local garden centers, and a children’s activity area. The winners of the teen essay contest will be announced at the Festival.

The first 200 attendees will receive a giveaway bag with coupons and gifts from the various participants. In addition, door prizes, also donated by the participants, will be drawn every hour.

For more information, call 865-215-8769, or check out www.knoxcounty.org/library for a full schedule of events.
