The Putnam County Fairgrounds in Cookeville, Tennessee, is offering an advertising and marketing opportunity perfect for area landscapers. Landscape beds located around the fairgrounds, each about 20 square feet, are available for “adoption” at no charge.

Landscapers who agree to plant and maintain one of the beds year-round will be allowed to include a sign in the planting bed advertising their businesses.

Fairgrounds manager Glenn Jones told The Herald Citizen thousands of people use the fairgrounds throughout the year. Currently there are three beds available, including one at the site’s entrance, which Jones said will be seen not only by visitors to the fairgrounds, but also by anyone who drives past.

Jones is hoping the offer draws lots of interest and he’s prepared to create more planting beds around the fairgrounds if it does. For details, visit the Putnam County Fairgrounds website. Better hurry, though, as this year’s fair is set for July 17-25.
