There's an upcoming work day for those who need Master Gardener volunteer hours or who may just want to help. It's a good way to learn about rain gardens too!

LOCATION:   We will meet at the Peter Jenkins Trailhead (corner of Bern Road and Port Royal) in Wyngate Estates.  Please bring gloves, wear work boots and bring water to drink.   Directions from Nashville
Take  I-65 South to Exit 53 Saturn Parkway
To the next off ramp Port Royal exit turn right and go past Kroger
Port Royal turns a hard left after about one mile, keep following it around about a mile when it takes a hard right.  Go across Duplex Road into Wyngate subdivision and follow down to bottom of hill.
Trailhead is on the right hand side of the road.  Follow the paved trail (approx. ¼ mile) to the storm water basin on the right.
