Southern Appalachian Plant Society Gardening Seminar

February 16, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Come join us Thursday, February 16, at 7 p.m. in the Kingsport Higher Ed Center for an evening of gardening education!

Plantsman, lecturer, and author Mark Weathington will show us why vines are some of his favorite plants and why he likes to use them throughout the landscape both growing on structures and climbing on other plants. Mark will highlight some of his favorite vines that would make a wonderful addition to any garden.
As the Director of the JC Raulston Arboretum at North Carolina State University, a nationally acclaimed garden with one of the largest and most diverse collections of landscape plants adapted for landscape use in the Southeast, Mark Weathington is passionate in his work to connect people with plants. His career in public horticulture has also included the Norfolk Botanical Garden where he served as Director of Horticulture and the Atlanta Botanical Garden as a horticulturist.

Mark travels extensively searching for new plants to diversify the American landscape. His explorations have taken him to China, Taiwan, Japan, Ecuador, Europe, Mexico, New Zealand, and throughout the US. Mark writes for Fine Gardening, Horticulture and other national magazines and is the author of Gardening in the South, The Complete Home owner’s Guide. For more, see his website:

A calendar has been created called the This is Kingsport events calendar which will serve as a non-public forum to provide citizens with information about social and organizational gatherings held within the city. The city will disseminate information to the public through this online calendar about social and organizational gatherings which are conducted or promoted by community partners with which the city currently has partnership agreements. Additionally, social or organizational gatherings held on city owned property to which the public at large is invited will be published on this calendar.

Each year the city enters into partnership agreements with multiple community partners some of whom in turn support the city by organizing events or promoting events of members and affiliates. By creating a common source for the dissemination of information about community events the city will be furthering its support of those community partners which in turn support the city. Moreover, the city wishes to and will benefit from highlighting gatherings which will be of benefit and enjoyment to the public.

Community partners may communicate their events or those which they promote to the city which will disseminate the information through the event calendar. Furthermore, the city of Kingsport will publish on the calendar those community events which are held on city property. In order to achieve the city’s goals only those events described herein will be published on the This is Kingsport event calendar which will be curated by city staff.
