The Lafayette Community Garden and Outdoor Learning Center celebrated its 10th year with a COMMUNITY OPEN HOUSE on Sunday, September 12, 2021. The event focused on indigenous culture and featured two inspirational speakers – – Jim ‘Doc’ Hale and Kanyon Sayers-Roods. Their presentations captivated and enriched our lives. In addition to the speakers, there were guided tours of the garden, information on raising chickens, master gardening and bee keeping, family crafts, edible treats, lavender lemonade, and an opportunity to walk a labyrinth and see the garden’s Miwok Village. Members were 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.
