Garden party at Larson Park

The Larson Park Community Food Garden, Sonoma Valley’s newest community garden opens its gates for a celebration on Saturday, March 15, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The free event will feature children’s activities, expert gardening advice, an opportunity to swap seeds, a and chance to register for use of a raised garden bed at the site. There will also be a take-home craft project for kids — three sessions for making a “soda bottle garden” wicking pot, at 11 a.m., noon, and 1 p.m.

The garden, which started out with plants in barrel halves, now has 26 raised garden beds. Enhancements since last year include eight new raised beds, a shed, permanent herb plantings, and the start of a composting project.

Activities are managed by the local non-profit Nuestra Voz de Sonoma. “The garden provides families in the Springs area a place to grow healthful food at a centrally located place where they can socialize and engage in outdoor activities,” explains Alejandra Cervantes, Nuestra Voz.
