The Muskingum County Master Gardeners are sponsoring the 8th annual Earth to Art event.

The event will take place on August 2 from 12PM to 6PM at the John McIntire Library. According to Muskingum County Master Gardner, David Newton, visitors who attend this event will be able to enjoy a variety of entertainment.

Newton said, "Folks can pick up an entry form and do floral arrangements, photography, a whole variety of things that they can enter. They can choose to compete or not compete. They can bring something down and donate it for our auctions. We will have a 50/50 raffle. We will have a silent auction. We have some food vendors."

All of the proceeds raised at this event will benefit the School Grants Program. This allows projects related to horticulture become a possibility for area students.

Newton said, "What we do with earth to art funds are funding for school projects related to horticulture, plant growing, habitat preservation, things like that and in the time that we’ve had this program, we have dispersed to area schools over $10,000."
