A Brief History of the History Garden at Fiddlers Grove

Thanks goes out to everyone who came out and helped in creating the History Garden. It was a fun time. It’s amazing how much can get done when we work together.

The Garden has been planted with lettuce, spinach and kale. I also put in flower seeds that need stratification in order to germinate. These flowers will used throughout the Grove and maybe will be available for sale at Spring Fest in April.

Next year the garden will be planted with sorghum, broom corn along with other heirloom vegetables.

Thank you for all that you do!

Volunteer & Education Hours Available

Hi Everyone!

20161009_142022I don’t know about you, but I am enjoying this beautiful fall weather. It’s the perfect time to come to Fiddlers Grove to help in creating and learning about the History Garden. This Saturday, October 15, at 8am we will be at Stewart’s Cabin (by Opry Stage) to start building raised beds.

If you are in need of Education hours come out with hammer in hand to learn how to build raised beds from landscape timbers.

If you are in need of volunteer hours, bring a hammer to pound rebar through landscape timbers into the ground (this is not as hard as it sounds).

As the beds are built we will need volunteers to fill the beds with soil (soil is bagged) and then if there is time we will mulch around the beds.

If you have any newspapers, please bring them. We will use them to put under the mulch.

Most importantly lunch will be provided for those who help. Please let me know if you can help this Saturday so I know how much food to make.

Thank you for all that you do!
Marianne Pelletier
