Tales a Plenty

Throughout our 15 years of growing, learning and teaching at the UK Demonstration & Trial Garden, we’ve had a special focus on children.  At Twilight in the Garden, children will gather under the pergola to hear the Tale of Peter Rabbit – the mischievous bunny who disobeyed his mom and raided Mr. MacGregor’s Garden.  He paid for not listening to his mum with an upset tummy and lost clothes.  After hearing the tale, as told by Retta Folsom, they’ll be invited to explore our own veggie patch and herb bed on a scavenger hunt for the items mentioned in the tale.  They’ll also meet Norman Wallace, who along with a team of dedicated volunteers, oversees the veggie garden.  (Light blue balloons will be scattered about the garden to help children locate the vegetables and herbs mentioned in the tale and learn how they grow).  Children will also enjoy the newly installed fairy garden--its water feature is already attracting butterflies!  Make a date with the Purchase Area Master Gardeners at Twilight in the Garden on Thursday, July 25, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.  UK Demonstration & Trial Garden, 3600 Coleman Road, Paducah, KY.  Follow signs for parking.
