Mid-American Gardener: P. Allen Smith’s Garden to Table Tour with WILL


P. Allen Smith


Heather Miller from WILL Membership Department and Chuck Voigt from Mid-American Gardener are hosting WILL-TV’s second motor coach trip to P. Allen Smith’s Plantation Home and Gardens, near Little Rock and Memphis Botanic Gardens.

October is a favorite time to visit Allen’s farm. It is cooler, the plants are at their fullest, and they have pumpkins everywhere! You’ll enjoy a delicious farm to table luncheon and take a private tour of Allen’s beautiful gardens.  It’s a ton of fun! In Memphis, enjoy a private tour at the Memphis Botanical Gardens with another farm to table lunch included. Also included: luncheon and a tour at Meramec Vineyards in St. James Missouri and dinner at the College of the Ozarks, where the students work in lieu of tuition.
