CLARKSVILLE, TENN. — Sustainability has become a major buzzword as the citizens of planet Earth continue to recognize its fragility — evidenced by today’s celebration of Earth Day. So when Habitat for Humanity ReStore began its Green Thumb Festival three years ago, it was an idea whose time had come.
This year the Green Thumb Festival, a free event that promotes everything from gardening to recycling, will take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 5 at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore at 408 Madison St. Set to the backdrop of music by Curious Bluegrass, the free festival includes area farmers who sell fresh produce, yard art sculpture and more for the garden. Members of the Montgomery County Master Gardeners Association will sell their home grown plants. There will also be a free giveaway of mulch and manure.
