The Lafayette Community Garden and Outdoor Learning Center is celebrating its 11th year with a COMMUNITY OPEN HOUSE on Sunday, August 28th from 11am to 2pm. The event is free and will feature inspirational speakers. Jim ‘Doc’ Hale will share fascinating information about the people who lived on this land for centuries before the 1800’s and a beekeeper from Mt. Diablo Beekeepers will talk about the amazing nature of bees and art of beekeeping
In addition to the speakers, there will be guided tours of the garden, information on raising chickens, master gardening, family crafts, edible treats, iced tea and lemonade, and an opportunity to walk a labyrinth and see the garden’s Miwok Village.
Garden members will be on hand to answer gardening questions and show off a variety of gardening methods and practices including hinged covers that prevent critters from eating crops, vermiculture (worm composting), mulching, a butterfly garden, deer resistant plantings and so much more.
We look forward to seeing you on August 28th! If you have questions, you can call (925) 946-0563. For more information about our garden, please visit our website: https://lafayettecommunitygarden.org/
