Habitat For Humanity Welcomes New ReStore Manager In Time For Green Thumb Festival
Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County, TN welcomes Kathryn Norbeck-Dayley as the new ReStore Manager. Norbeck arrives just in time to be a part of ReStore's second annual Green Thumb Festival. The Green Thumb Festival is a free community event.
Clarksville, TN (I-Newswire) April 22, 2011 - Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore of Clarksville recently welcomed new manager, Kathryn Norbeck-Dayley. Norbeck joins the staff as they prepare for the second annual Green Thumb Festival.
Norbeck, a native Clarksvillian, said, “I’m excited to be a part of such a great organization, Habitat for Humanity and ReStore do good works; plain and simple. I’m proud to represent Clarksville ReStore and Habitat of Montgomery County as the ReStore manager and very excited to participate in ReStore’s Green Thumb Festival this spring.”
ReStore’s Green Thumb Festival provides the Clarksville community with information on gardening, composting, sustainability, and recycling. Green Thumb is Saturday May 7th, 2011 from 9am to 5pm in the ReStore parking lot located at 408 Madison St. in downtown Clarksville.
“The Festival is a great opportunity to bring people to the store, letting them see what ReStore has to offer and a chance to help the community of Clarksville understand more about the culture of our organization. Habitat not only builds affordable housing but also cares about the environment of the communities those houses are built in; from recycling programs to gardens,” said Norbeck.
ReStore will be giving away free mulch donated by Bi-County Waste Management and manure donated by Locust Run Stables. Norbeck explained, “We hope to have a Bobcat to help with the loading of the mulch. But, we will definitely have some larger paper bags and shovels to help the public.” There will be a myriad of activities for kids throughout the day ranging from face painting to making wind chimes to the popular new game, corn hole. The education tent will have a variety of demos on topics ranging from making a rain barrel, hydroponic gardening, edible gardens, etc. Presenters will cover a wide variety of topics such as raising bees, caring for our native trees, garden pests and diseases, and growing herbs just to name a few.
Event coordinator, Becky Hall said, “It’s about everything in the garden. So, if you’re an avid gardener or a novice looking to learn more, or would just like some free mulch, come check out the festival.” The complete schedule of events can be found on ReStore’s website, www.restoreclarksville.org.
The event wouldn’t be possible without the support of sponsors like Quality Web Printing, Active Screen Graphics, Sign Art, Bi-County Solid Waste Management, Montgomery Farmers Co-Op, Madison Street United Methodist Church, Hilldale Baptist Church, Red River Hardscapes, Sunbelt, Locust Stable, Copies in Flash, Pepsi, and Inadequate Seating.com.
