Paducah Garden Club Flower Show
The Paducah Garden Club announces, “Belong to Your Place, the Wisdom of Wendell Berry,” a Garden Club of America Flower Show. The show will showcase Floral Design, Horticulture, Photography, Needle Art, and Education, along with a variety of exhibits. The writings of prolific Kentucky author, conservation hero, and National Humanities Medalist Wendell Berry are the genesis of the show. Mr. Berry’s themes stimulate the love of gardening, the study of horticulture and the protection of the environment. Quotations displayed throughout the show are a reminder to slow down, observe one’s surroundings and revere one’s home place. A special presentation to highlight Mr. Berry’s works and message will open the Flower Show at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 16, on the Carson Center stage. Representatives from The Berry Center will be present.
