Work Day

I heard from Liz Moniz, one of the folks working on the edible public garden at Tyson Park that there will be a work day coming up. I love work days: they epitomize for me the socializing of good behavior and prove true the adage of many hands making light work. More than that, this is a great opportunity to get out, learn some new skills, help Knoxville's community and land, and meet some new people in town.

The first work day is Sunday, April 18th, from 9 am – 4 pm, at the Community Nourishment Garden at Tyson Park, 2351 Kingston Park (between the tennis courts). They will be " laying the pathway, building a water catchment system, constructing trellises, and putting some plants in the ground."

Parking available at the Kingston Pike and Concord Street park entrances

From the flyer promoting the work day:

We’ve developed plans to implement a charitable community garden with fruit trees, berries, and vegetables, cared for by a diverse team of volunteers to benefit refugees at the Bridge Refugee Settlement Services.

We need your help.

If you or your group/organization would like to get involved in this meaningful community initiative on April 18th through sponsorship or volunteer commitment, please contact us. Any time you can spare is appreciated! Tools and guidance will be provided!

Just come on down and bring your friends!
