On a recent Harvest Day, gardeners contributed their locally-grown produce to local food pantries.

Garden To Celebrate 20 Years on Sept. 8

The Attleboro Area Community Garden’s 20th Anniversary Celebration will be held on September 8, 2018 from 1 pm to 4 pm at the Garden on Hayward and Mechanic Streets in Attleboro, with a rain location at Murray UU Church, 505 North Main Street, Attleboro.

The afternoon program will include:

  • A workshop presented by Master Gardener Kathi Gariepy on “Preparing for Next Year’s Garden – Tips and Tools.” The workshop will explore how to put the garden to bed, looking at what went right this season, and how to improve the garden for next year.  In addition, a few tools will be shown that will help make next year a great and productive year in the garden.  The workshop is scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm.
  • Bloom Gardening for Good will host a garden-themed rock painting activity for children from 1:00 to 2:15.
  • At 2:30 a program honoring the Garden’s achievements and volunteers will take place.  Light refreshments and a cake will be served.
  • Donations of fresh produce and non-perishable food will be accepted during the afternoon and will be donated to the Murray UU Church Food Pantry.
