Weekend To Do List - Socially Distant Edition

Each week we bring you the Great Life RE Weekend To Do List. We don't want to stop now! As we tread these dangerous waters many people are still staying home or social distancing and being cautious. While we wait for things to get better, we want to bring you plenty of great things to do. It's easy to go stir-crazy at home, but thankfully there are a lot of ways to stay active and safe while you're practicing social distancing. 

So let's try another week of the Great Life RE Weekend To Do List: Social Distancing Edition! 

Do: Ice Cream Social 

When: Sunday, July 19th, 2pm-6pm

Where: The Winery at Seven Springs Farm / 1474 Highway 61 E, Maynardville

Who is ready for an Ice Cream Social at The Winery?!?! Join in for wine, ice cream and live music.

Try: Miniature Zen Garden

When: Saturday, July 15th, 8am-9am

Where: Knoxville Botanical Garden & Arboretum / 2743 Wimpole Ave, Knoxville

Perfect for those who love succulents and have the desire to craft a meditative garden space. Zen gardens, also known as Japanese rock gardens or a dry landscape garden, use a combination of soil, sand, rocks, and succulents or bushes.

At present, they believe they will be able to host this workshop in person, but in the event that stricter social distancing guidelines are put back in place, the facilitator, Cotton + Moss, will be sending out at-home-kits for the garden and posting tutorial videos on Youtube.

In this workshop, you’ll be crafting a miniature zen garden that will be great to place in any area of your home. Focus will be on succulents that have lower light requirements and be utilizing sand to evoke waves and calm. In a spin on the classic rock garden, they’ll be providing a variety of crystals like amethyst, kyanite, and others that symbolize purity and meditation to make your garden really speak to your needs. Come ready to design your peaceful landscape!
