Plateau AgResearch and Education Center to Host Two In-Person Events

Jul 12, 2021


The University of Tennessee Plateau AgResearch and Education Center is pleased to welcome the public back to the center for two events later this season. The Fall Gardeners’ Festival and the Steak and Potatoes Field Day will be in-person and will include presentations from the UT Institute of Agriculture experts.
  • Fall Gardeners’ Festival – August 31, 8 a.m. CDT
  • Steak and Potatoes – September 2, 8 a.m. CDT
The Fall Gardeners’ Festival will cover 13 diverse topics for home gardeners ranging from edible landscaping, fruit, and nut crops to gardening under trees and rain gardening. The festival opens at 8 a.m., but presentations begin at 9 a.m. and will conclude at 3 p.m. Pre-registration is offered, but it is not required.
The Fall Gardeners’ Festival is held in cooperation with the Cumberland County Master Gardeners Association. More information can be found online.
The Steak and Potatoes Field Day will feature presentations geared more for producers on topics that range from cattle production to land management. Topics include an introduction to cattle genomics, forages and beef nutrition, long-term impacts of reproductive management decisions on herd profitability, as well as treatment of tree pests. An update on the U.S. Sustainability Round Table and what it means for Tennessee producers will also be presented.
Pre-registration is not required for the Steak and Potatoes Field Day.
Both events are open to the public and are free to attend.
