Late Bloomer – Arts & Ag – Part 1 – Episode 29 covers Kaye’s visit to Hickman County, Tennessee, over Memorial Day weekend. From locally grown foods and live music to handmade goods, the Arts & Ag Tour had it all! Part 1 begins with a quick stop into Wild Duck Soup Emporium on the public square in Centerville, where Kaye met local farmer, Stu Conant.

Then, we get a glimpse of the three gals whose idea it was to promote the do-it-yourself, grow your own spirit of Hickman County with an annual Memorial Day weekend Arts & Ag Tour. Local photographer Cindy Sarlo was hot on my trail shooting gorgeous stills. See her shots of the tour here.

Then, we are off to Betty’s Organic Bee Garden to meet late blooming beekeeper Betty Harvill-Heinz and her daughters Mary Jane and Nancy Harvill, who, distressed about the bee population decline, attended a beekeeping workshop in 2011, and decided to jump in.

    Woo-hoo! I just watched Arts and Ag, part one, episode 29. What fun! You did a wonderful job capturing the spirit of the day and editing it into an interesting segment. I look forward to viewing more like this one. Thank you for helping to get the good news about our county out there. — Mary Jane

    Awesome and entertaining for sure!! great story about mother and daughter and three ladies that started Arts and Ag!! very inspiring!!
    i would love to see more and can you pls make it a longer video!! would enjoy @ least another few minutes of your videos!! 🙂

    • I’ll have to talk to my editor, Andy! She’s always telling me I should keep them to five minutes, which is almost impossible for me! My next two episodes (after ARts & Ag) will be Summer Garden Update, which will be longer. Thanks for watching and writing! – Kaye
