Community volunteer day to be held Saturday
Master Gardeners of Rutherford County will host a community volunteer work day on Saturday, Sept. 28, as part of National Public Lands Day.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the daylong event, the nation's largest single-day volunteer event for public lands.
It will be held at the Lane Agri-Park from 9 a.m. to noon.
Members of the Master Gardeners organization are inviting both skilled and novice gardeners to help with annual fall maintenance of four demonstration gardens: herb garden, vegetable garden, butterfly garden and rain garden.
Tasks to be done include weeding, mulching, and thinning or dividing garden plants.
Master gardeners will be onsite to direct work and discuss each garden. They also will answer general gardening questions.
The event will proceed rain or shine. Check-in will be at the gazebo near the Community Building Center at the back of the Agri-Park property. Gloves and tools will be available, but participants are encouraged to bring their own, if preferred. Water and snacks will also be provided.
For more information, visit www.mastergardeners-rc.org or call Janie Becker at 615-898-7710.
