Harvest Day at Fair Oaks Horticulture Center

Posted by olemike on 08/07/2011

We attended the Fair Oaks Horticulture Center Harvest Day festivities on Saturday and had a great time.  If you like to garden, this is an event not to miss.  Master Gardeners were there to answer questions, many booths were focused on irrigation practices, gardening techniques, and there were a number of lectures.  We attended two of those – First, “Growing Your Own Groceries” and secondly, Composting with Worms”.  Both were entertaining but my favorite was “Growing Your Own Groceries”.  It was given by Shawn Harrison, Owner & Co-Director of Soil Born Farms.  Check out the website.  It is pretty interesting.  Leona and I do plan to try the worm composting that we learned about.

We walked through the common garden plots and saw quite a few outstanding vegetable beds.  It gives us something to shoot for in our own garden.

There were probably about 2000 gardeners there.  It was a great activity to attend.  We will definitely attend next year as well.
