I’m silly excited about this. It’s only only my second year of gardening so obviously I consider myself a novice and I’m anxious to learn. If you’re local to Nashville and you enjoy gardening you’ll want to check this out.
The Nashville Zoo and the Davidson County Master Gardeners are hosting gardening classes every Saturday during March and April at the Zoo’s Grassmere Historic Home. They plan to cover a variety of topics from mulching and composting to heirloom plants. This is the perfect opportunity to learn from local resources and ask all of your gardening questions. Handouts, soil sample kits and other helpful items will be available at all sessions.
You can find all the details here, but here’s a quick run down.
Classes are free with regular zoo admission. No registration is required. Just meet up in the Grassmere Historic Home garden at 10 a.m. Expect the session to last 30-60 minutes.
