The Larson Park Community Food Garden opens its gates for a celebration from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 15, to welcome all neighbors to view the cultivation and the on-going improvements taking place as the garden begins its second year of operation.
The Sonoma Valley’s newest community garden will set up tables with children’s activities, expert gardening advice, an opportunity to swap seeds, and a chance to register for use of a raised garden bed at the site.
The day’s events will include a take-home craft project for kids to make. Three sessions for making a “soda bottle garden” wicking pot will be offered at 11 a.m., noon, and 1 p.m.
The Community Food Garden is located at Larson Park in Boyes Hot Springs and is accessed through neighborhood streets reached via Boyes Boulevard to De Chene Street or via Highway 12 in the vicinity of Flowery School.
Also available will be background information on the evolution of the Larson Park Community Food Garden idea from planted half barrels to today’s group effort with 26 raised garden beds.
