Welcome to the South Woodlawn Neighborhood Association site!

Mark your calendar now for our Annual Plant and Seed Share meeting on May 18th (one week early due to Memorial Day). If you start your own seeds and end up with more seedlings and seeds than you have ground, bring them to this annual event! Or, come see what your neighbors brought to share.

We have reached our goal and have become the 1st Community Wildlife Habitat in the State of Tennessee and 75th in the nation.

In recognition of this achievement, we had a party at Stanley's Greenhouse on Saturday April 12, 2014.

In order to remain certified, we must continue to earn points each year. We will be posting opportunities to become involved as we identify projects for our 2015 certification.

Visit our Wildlife Habitats of South Woodlawn page for more information about this project.

Our membership meetings are the 4th Monday in January, March, May, July, September and November 

We meet at 7:00 p.m. at the Woodlawn Christian Church, 4339 Woodlawn Pike [map to church]. Watch for our neighborhood meeting signs that are put out the weekend before the meeting.

Be sure to check out the Knoxville Police Department and Knox County Sheriff's new RAIDS Online
