Carloftis Garden Event Planned Oct. 3 at My Old Kentucky Home
My Old Kentucky Home State Park in Bardstown will host a garden makeover by renowned landscape designer Jon Carloftis on Oct. 3 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Carloftis has partnered with the historic home and park in the redesign and reconstruction of this garden by selecting shrubs, perennials and annuals from the plant company Proven Winners.
Admission is $125 a person and includes breakfast, lunch, the garden presentations and a Maker’s Mark bourbon tasting. Proceeds from the event benefit the garden, grounds and venues.
My Old Kentucky Home State Park includes the historic mansion called Federal Hill. Construction of Federal Hill was started by John Rowan in 1795 and was completed in 1818. The historic home is the subject of Stephen Foster’s song, “My Old Kentucky Home,” which is also the Kentucky state song. The park also has an 18-hole golf course, campground, picnic area and a summertime theatrical production – “The Stephen Foster Story.”
