Park to host gardening workshop


Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area and the Northeast Tennessee Master Gardener Association will host Master Gardener Ben Hunter for his final gardening presentation of 2012.

Hunter’s presentation, “Winterizing and Extending Your Garden,” will be held in the theater of Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park’s Visitors Center on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 10 a.m. to noon.

A gardener of over 63 years, he presently has more than 100 raised garden beds at his home. He has implemented several techniques that eliminate much of the back breaking work of gardening, which include the use of raised beds and an extensive use of compost.

In addition to being a Certified Master Gardener, Hunter is a retired chemist and retired volunteer fireman.

His talk is open to the public and geared toward all levels, from current gardeners to anyone who might be interested in gardening. He will share his vast experiences and successes in gardening. Hunter’s passion for gardening is sure to ignite your love of gardening and working outdoors.

For more information, call Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area at 543-5808.
