The Monteagle Sunday School Assembly is a Chautauqua community organized in 1882. Because the Weed Wrangle®-MSSA will take place during the 2018 season, it will involve both an educational component, a lecture, in the morning and an invasive plant removal in the afternoon. The community is looking forward to learning about the invasive species that are most problematic for the Cumberland Plateau and involving all generations in removing them. Stewardship of the Assembly grounds and adjacent woods is important to the MSSA community, and we are looking forward to learning how to take care of our native flora.
The Weed Wrangle® started by The Garden Club of Nashville in 2015, expanded to the Knoxville Garden Club, Garden Club of Lookout Mountain, Memphis Garden Club, and The Little Garden Club of Memphis in 2016. All clubs are members of The Garden Club of America and participants in the GCA Partners for Plants program.
