A little rain isn’t going to stop us! We’re celebrating our 5th season at our annual Open House and Harvest Celebration from now till 3PM.
We have nibbles, games, crafts, music and more…all for FREE, including a raffle at 2:15pm. All community members are welcome, so drop on by.
Join us at the Garden for delicious snacks and drinks, scarecrow making, garden crafts and local music. The Open House and Harvest Celebration is free, so invite you friends and come down for a good time! It’s on Sunday, October 16 from 11AM to 3PM.
The Master Gardeners will be at the garden to answer questions from 10:00AM to 11:30AM. They are a wonderful resource. Please take advantage of the experience each brings to the garden and tell your neighbors and friends about this opportunity as well. At 11:00AM, the Master Gardeners will walk through the garden and share their impressions and advice. We hope you’ll join them.
