Fifth Street Community Garden walks return for 2019

The April garden walk focuses on getting a jump on the short gardening season, soil testing and crop rotation. Vegetable varietals that do well in this area will be discussed. Come learn and share your gardening experiences.

“Second Saturday Garden Walks” are free and open to the public and occur rain or shine. They will continue every second Saturday until Sept. 14. The walks are ideal for persons starting a vegetable garden for the first time and gardeners who are new to the Pacific Northwest but also are beneficial to the more experienced gardener.

The Fifth Street Community Garden is at 328 E. Fifth St. in Port Angeles just off Peabody Street and across from City Hall. The garden includes over 50, 9 foot by 12 foot plots. The garden was developed on city property in 2011 with a vision to connect people to the earth and their community through growing food.

Master Gardeners also are available for one-on-one garden advice at the Community Garden on Mondays now through mid-October from 10 a.m.-noon.

Master Gardeners are volunteer community educators — cultivating plants, people and communities. For more information on the program or “Second Saturday Garden Walks” call the Clallam County program coordinator at 360-565-2679.
