Keep Knoxville Beautiful

Join us for our annual seed share and bi-monthly membership meeting at Woodlawn Christian Church.

South Knoxville is Keep Knoxville Beautiful's Community of the Year! Until June 2017, they will focus on South Knoxville for cleanups, education, and beautification projects--while still helping out in other parts of the county. Patience Melnik, Executive Director of Keep Knoxville Beautiful, will be at our May meeting to talk to us about how we can make the best impact on our community.

Spring is that wonderful time of year when the seedlings you started in January are ready to put in the ground and you can sow seeds you purchased in anticipation of just the right time to plant. What to do when you have more seedlings and seeds than you have ground? Bring them to our annual seed & plant share! Or, if you didn’t have time to start seedlings and/or haven’t bought seed packages yet, come see what your neighbors have to share.

As always, we’ll have refreshments. Bring a friend - or two!

SWNA meets every other month - typically on the 4th Monday. Watch for the blue ‘Neighborhood Meeting’ signs.
