May 19
Urban Gardening Festival

Local chefs whip up delicious dishes with fresh produce, while gardening experts show how to use native plants to attract pollinators, and more at the FREE UT Master Gardeners of Davidson County Urban Gardening Festival.

This year’s Festival focuses on the latest trends in gardening and offers an impressive lineup of speakers from across the state. Free presentations will be given by UT Extension Agents, Master Gardeners and local experts to help the public create the best soil, build backyard green houses, tackle pest control and bring more birds and butterflies into the garden.

New this year, the Chef Tent is the place to be inspired! Learn how to make an energy drink from local honey, improve gut health with homemade kefir, or watch a cooking demo with locally grown produce. Master Gardeners of Davidson County, who are trained by UT Extension Agents, will present how-to demonstrations on container gardening, mastering herbs and flowers and much, much more. And for youngsters, there’s plenty to do at the Children’s Tent including make-and-take potted marigolds, face painting, and decorating garden rocks.

An array of local flowers and vegetable plants will be on sale along with an extensive offering of handmade products by local artisans. Pottery, gourd baskets, breads, cork wreathes, unique planters, fairy gardens, and birdhouses are just a few of the offerings. Experts will be on hand to review and diagnose plant issues, and over 50 exhibitors will be on site to teach about all aspects of gardening including chickens, beekeeping, and composting. Tasty eats and beverages will be available for purchase from local food trucks.
