Local gardeners will celebrate the harvest on from noon-2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, at the Fifth Street Community Garden, 328 E. Fifth St., Port Angeles. The event is the last of the popular 2013 Lunch in the Garden monthly educational series sponsored by WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners.

 

The October Lunch in the Garden, co-sponsored by Port Angeles Victory Gardens, is a Harvest Celebration. The event will include a walk through the garden, a potluck, demonstrations on seed saving and tool sharpening and a pressure cooker check. Because of the bounty experienced in many Clallam County gardens this year, organizers are planning a produce exchange. Local gardeners are encouraged to bring excess produce from their gardens to share with others; leftovers will be donated to the Port Angeles Food Bank.

 

As part of Harvest Celebration, veteran Master Gardeners Laurel Moulton, Bob Cain and Jeanette Stehr-Green will discuss ways to keep your vegetable garden producing into the fall (season extenders), curing winter squash and onions, and putting the garden to bed.

 

The Fifth Street Community Garden is located just off Peabody Street, right across from City Hall. The garden includes over 50 individuals plots that are each 9 feet by 12 feet. The garden was developed on city property in 2011 with a vision to connect people to the earth and their community through growing food.

 

The Fifth Street Community Garden Harvest Celebration is free and open to the public. Rain location for the Oct. 12 event is the First Step Family Support Center at 325 E. Sixth St. Participants are encouraged to bring their own eating utensils, a lawn chair and food to share. The event is free and open to the public. All are welcome to this Harvest Celebration!
