The lawn and garden event is set to return after a three-year hiatus


JACKSON, Tenn. – An annual event at the West Tennessee AgResearch Center always draws a large crowd.

Summer Celebration 2022 Lawn and Garden Show is scheduled to begin this Thursday. This year’s theme will be “The Power of Plants”.

The 32nd annual event returns in-person after a three-year hiatus due to COVID-19. The Power of Plants theme highlights how gardening has become a therapeutic hobby for so many people during the pandemic.

The event will include guest speakers, children’s activities, plant sales, garden tours and gardening tips.

“What we try to do is do research and educate the public. And that’s the whole point of this event. I think it’s important to the community because they learn about the landscaping industry and its value to Tennessee. And they learn how to make their lawns and gardens more beautiful and more manageable,” said Scott Stewart, director of the West Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center.

The summer celebration begins Thursday, July 14 at the West Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center in West Jackson.

It will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. General admission is $5 for guests 18 and older.
