The Hanna and Herbert Bauer Memorial Community Garden will host two garden events in September, both free, sponsored by the Yolo County Health Services Department and open to all.
On Saturday, Sept. 6, from 10 a.m. to noon, expert canner Rick Boyd will teach a class on preserving tomatoes from the garden. This class will cover the basics of water bath canning, making sauces and making tomato jam. Pre-registration is required by noon Friday, Sept. 5.
Yolo County will celebrate the garden’s one-year anniversary from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 19. The celebration will feature fresh food from the garden, a showcase of garden successes in the past year and an opportunity to learn about the various activities and programs the garden offers.
Join the garden staff, community gardeners, Yolo County leaders and community supporters for this festive event. RSVP is preferred.
“The Hanna and Herbert Bauer Memorial Community Garden has been an asset to the community over the past year as a venue for residents to grow fresh produce or learn how to integrate gardens into their homes,” said Yolo County Health Services Director Jill Cook.
“We are pleased with how successful the garden programs have been in the first year, and we look forward to further bringing the community together through garden activities in the years to come.”
The garden is on the west side of the Health Services building at 137 N. Cottonwood St. in Woodland. To register for the Sept. 6 class or RSVP for the Sept. 19 celebration, contact Robin Rocksvold at 530-666-8528 or [email protected]
