Growing up hiking and camping in the Great Smoky Mountains NP probably instilled a love of the natural world from early on. I am from Knoxville and have now lived in Chattanooga for over 25 years, so I'm truly an East Tennesseean. This region is home to a huge diversity of plant life and is beautiful year-round. About 10 years ago I became really interested in landscaping with native plants and have been gardening at home with natives since then. I have nearly completed courses and volunteer hours required for a certificaton in native plants. This program is through the local chapter of a national, nonprofit organization called Wild Ones. I belong to the Tennessee Valley chapter, the mission of which is to educate and advocate for biodiversity in the Tennessee Valley. We offer a variety of programs and events, many of which are free to the public, throughout the year that teach sustainable landscaping practices using plants that are native to our region.
