Weekend To Do List - Socially Distant Edition

We are still being cautious and hoping and praying that COVID goes away SOON! Each week we bring you the Great Life RE Weekend To Do List. We don't want to stop now! 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: Permaculture Tour

When: Saturday, September 12th, 9am-3pm

Where: Sustainable Future Center / 201 Ogle Ave. Knoxville 

Sustainable Future Center holds an annual Permaculture Tour, featuring garden and permaculture projects in our area, meant to inspire, catalyze and invigorate you in your permaculture journey.

How does it work?

You come to the Sustainable Future Center first between 9am - 3pm, start your tour at the site and then you'll sign up for the other site tours at the front desk. You will be given a health screening and a band at SFC, that you will need in order to visit the other sites. Then you're off! Most sites are within 15 minutes (you will be driving yourself to the other sites).

This is your chance to see permaculture sites in different stages of development, observe and ask questions.

First on the tour is the Sustainable Future Center where they will showcase the burgeoning practice of permaculture design. View the sites, systems, and regenerative practices put in place in the five years since the center's inception.

Meet some of the people who farm, garden, teach, and create at the Sustainable Future Center, as well as connect with your permaculture/farming community.

You must check in at Sustainable Future Center by 3pm and the last tour ends at 6pm. (some sites end by 2pm, so come early if you can!)

When: Friday at 7pm, Saturday at 1pm, Sunday at 3pm

Where: Knoxville Children's Theatre / 109 East Church Well Avenue, Knoxville 

Adapted from the award-winning book by Louis Sachar, this play focuses on Stanley Yelnats, a troubled kid who is sent to a boys’ detention center, Camp Green Lake. The warden tells the boys that they must dig holes five feet wide by five feet deep in order to “build character.” But Stanley soon realizes that this isn’t the real reason they’re being subjected to such treatment. The boys are digging holes because the warden is looking for something, and Stanley will do his best to dig up the truth. To see the current safety precautions that KCT has in place click here.
