Come visit the Master Gardeners of Hamilton County’s exhibit at the first “Healthy Living Expo” in Chattanooga at the Chattanooga Convention Center on Friday, October 1st and Saturday, October 2nd. This 2-day event will feature all aspects of Healthy Living with an estimated 100 exhibitors providing interactive exhibits and demonstrations.
The Master Gardeners will be answering gardening questions which will reinforce other programs at the Expo devoted to healthy eating by using herbs and other home grown, organic vegetables and fruits. There will be a raised bed and compost display along with information on having a home garden, large or small.
As Master Gardeners, we stress that anyone can grow their own foods by using the best information that is available to us through Master Gardener and University of Tennessee researched and tested information.
The 2010 Tennessee centennial anniversary of the Plant Sciences Department of the University of Tennessee’s theme is “Helping Grow Tennessee” and that is what the Master Gardeners are all about.
