Second Saturday Garden Walks resume April 8

Home gardeners can get timely advice about vegetable and berry gardening from 10-11:30 a.m. Saturday, April 8, during a tour of the Fifth Street Community Garden, 328 E. Fifth St., Port Angeles.

The event is part of the Second Saturday Garden Walks, an educational series sponsored by WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners that starts in April and runs through September. The April walk is the first walk of the 2023 season.

Hear what needs to be done in vegetable gardens at this time of year (and how to do it) and talk about problems that are likely to appear. Learn what integrated pest management control measures exist for common pests and diseases. organizers encourage attendees to bring questions and get helpful science-based advice.

Second Saturday Garden Walks are free and open to the public and occur rain or shine.

The walks are ideal for people 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, organizers say.

The garden includes more than 50 individuals plots, 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.
