In the past, the best photographic moments of the Master Gardeners Fall Festival were probably when you walked through the registration tent and onto the grounds of Discovery Garden. Being confronted by a 9-foot-tall garden goddess was the perfect start for the learning adventures to follow.
Many are wondering what this decoration committee has in store for them this year. It is said to be huge and many people will want to have their picture taken next to it. It’s something that fits the AgResearch theme of culture and education with respect to soil, weather, and shared experience.
Join many of your neighbors at the Plateau Research and Education Center on the highway. 70 N. for this annual event. The event was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in 2021 due to a predicted tornado. Most of the speakers and vegetable garden experts who had planned to participate in 2021 have agreed to answer your questions of the moment and introduce you to the latest in landscaping. Learn about iris and pineapple lilies and see for yourself what nursery favorites actually look like years after they were planted.
Twelve speakers will present various garden topics with seating in extra large tents. There will be exhibits, plant sales, vegetable tastings and food vendors. Because the Master Gardeners program is part of the University of Tennessee, they are all about education and they want to share that with like-minded people. This day is free to the public.
The Fall Garden Festival will be held at Discovery Gardens, Plateau Education and Research Center, 320 Experiment Station Rd. August 30. Doors open at 8 a.m.
