The UK department of horticulture and arboretum will feature various aspects of environmentally conscious landscaping. A small shed with a green roof, a down spout from the roof with simulated water flowing into a rain barrel, and the rain barrel spilling over into a rain garden will be on display. A demonstration of several types of back yard composting and vermicomposting (with worms) will be a hit with the kids. There will be a small vegetable garden where volunteers talk about the use of compost and rain water in growing food.
Volunteering for UK Ag will be 30 Extension Master Gardeners from Fayette and Franklin Counties who will be available during most times of the show to answer people's questions as well volunteers from the Friends of the Arboretum on hand to answer people's questions as well.
