Where: Stanley's Greenhouse / 3029 Davenport Rd. SE, Knoxville
Stanley's Greenhouse is pleased to offer these events celebrating our planet’s most beautiful pollinator: the ethereal and inspiring butterfly:
~ Children’s Butterfly Workshop - a hands-on event where children of all ages can create a butterfly mask, ring, or other fun butterfly craft. All supplies for the children’s workshop will be on hand and no registration is required. Children of all ages are welcome.
~ Beneficial Plants for Butterflies - an informal talk in which Abby Stanley-Jerrolds will introduce you to the amazing plants that offer food or shelter to butterflies at some point in their life cycle.
~ A Butterfly Scavenger Hunt in Monte’s Meadow - yes, again this year the Davenport-Stanley Farm will be open to visitors—especially the butterfly meadow just past the spring-fed pond. Monte Stanley and his wife Ann Whitney live in the nearby farmhouse which dates back to the early 1800s.
~ Milk + Honey Creamery - will be selling their delicious and unique ice cream treats at the butterfly festival. M+HC is a pop-up, craft ice cream purveyor born and raised in Knoxville. They hope to be opening their first store front shop at the Kern's Bakery Food Hall on Chapman Highway in late 2022.
All events are free and open to the public with no registration required. If you have questions about the event, call 865-573-9591.
