Earth to Art

The 8th annual earth to art event took root today at the John Mcintire Library.

Master Gardeners hosted the event in front of the library under tents filled with flowers, art and auction items. The day featured live music and a children's workshop where kids could learn about taking care of the Earth with crafts and fun.

Master Gardener Beth Brown said they enjoy the event and it's all about giving back to the academic community.

"All our proceeds benefit Muskingum County educators in the form of grants," said Brown. "The Master Gardeners understand what a tough job our teachers have and this is our way to support them. "

There was a silent auction, a half and half raffle and judging of some original works of garden art. Many people from the community helped to make the event possible including the welcome center where food and drinks were sold to guests. Brown said it takes a great effort to put on an event this size.

"Our mission is to educate the community on the horticultural education and how to be good stewards of the earth," said Brown.

All of the money earned at the Earth to Art event will go towards grants for local educators. The Master Gardeners said they see the sacrifices that teachers and educators make and they want to show their appreciation.
