The Annual Garden Walk in the Cooper-Young neighborhood of Memphis is a fantastic event that has grown into the largest garden walk in the mid-south. Kim is going to discuss the highlights and growth of the garden walk. She will also discuss how you can create signature pieces to be the focal point in your own garden.
Kim is an avid gardener, garden speaker, blogger, retired teacher, and imaginative placemaker. In 2016, she founded the Cooper-Young Garden Walk, a quirky, imaginative 2-day garden extravaganza that encompasses 80+ gardens, artist studios, businesses, community gardens and much neighborhood involvement.
Kim’s mission is to make Memphis and the Midsouth a Premier Garden Tourist Destination through open garden tours and special garden events. Garden Tourism is the second fastest growing tourism sector behind food tourism.
In her spare time, Kim enjoys speaking to garden and neighborhood groups about growing beauty in communities, traveling with her husband, visiting family, and discovering garden gems around the country.
She is a member of: The Cooper-Young Garden Club, The Kennedy View Club, The Horticultural Society, The Herb Society, The Garden Bloggers Fling, and the Garden Communicators International.

Annual Plant Sale
The Perennial Plant Society has an annual plant sale in Nashville TN, probably one of the largest in Tennessee. Due to the COVID pandemic we had to switch to a virtual plant sale in 2020 and 2021.
The Annual Plant Sale for 2021 has SOLD OUT. For 2022, we are hopeful that we will be able to have an in person plant sale
Look for announcements about the 2022 Plant Sale on our website early March 2022.
As always, we will have hundreds of great, locally grown plants for sun and shade for you to choose from. And once again, your purchases will support horticultural education and scholarship in Tennessee.
