The planting process will begin at the Knoxville Pocket Park even sooner than originally planned. Park designer Harv Sprafka says the original plan was to begin planting this Saturday, but due to rain in the forecast things have been moved forward so that the plants can benefit from the spring rains. Therefore, 7 trees and 18 shrubs will be delivered at 9am Thursday morning. The planting process will begin at 2pm Thursday with help from the Knoxville High School Science Club, FFA and Vo Ag department along with representatives from A Call to Serve Ministries and area Boy Scouts. Though Sprafka says additional volunteers are needed. Those who are interested in helping with the Pocket Park planting process Thursday Afternoon are asked to call Harv Sprafka at 842-2236.
