Arvada’s community garden will celebrate its 51st year at an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18 at 9195 W. 57th Ave.,
The community garden has 100-plus plots is operated and maintained by community garden members who enjoy gardening, don’t have a yard or enough room for a garden, or who just enjoy the social environment. The membership fee grants members a 12-by-22-foot plot, ditch water, rototilling, tool use, greenhouse space, plants and seeds, off-season storage and free advice.
The open house will include tours of the gardens, beginning at 10 a.m. and starting about every 30 minutes. The first door prize drawing will be at 10:30 a.m., and more drawings will follow about every 45 minutes.
The put-and-take table will be open until 1:30 p.m. Gardeners bring something from their garden to put on the table, than take something that someone else has left.
Lunch is served at 11:30 a.m., and this year’s gardeners will bring in their favorite dish made from garden-grown ingredients. Dishes include many Russian, Asian, Hispanic and American items.
The garden will supply drinks, refreshments and hot dogs on the grill. Garden members also will cook plot-to-pot corn on the cob, and will crush and press apples for juice.
Attendees will judge the best looking garden for the Gold Shovel Award. Many local merchants have donated garden-related items for door prizes, and free gift bags will be available for the kids.
