Let’s Grow Garden Expo set for Nov. 2

Everything you need to know about gardening and even more will be presented during the Let’s Grow Garden Expo in the TIGUrS Urban Garden located adjacent to the Elma Roane Fieldhouse on Nov. 2 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., an event that is open to campus and the public.

Vendors, mini-workshops, garden demonstrations and a “garden jumble” full of garden-related items for purchase will be offered in a yard sale-type of format.

The Green Bus, a mobile grocery store option for residents of Memphis in areas where supermarkets aren’t available, will also be open for viewing. The concept for the bus, which offers fresh and healthy food items, was partly created by students and faculty in the U of M’s graduate program in city and regional planning in the School of Urban Affairs and Public Policy.

“This event is a hands-on, fun learning experience for anyone interested in gardening,” says Karyl Buddington, co-founder of the TIGRuS urban garden. “All U of M employees and students are welcome.”

Buddington is looking for donations for the “garden jumble” yard sale and can contact her at kbudding@memphis.edu for more details.
