Join Slow Food Lake Tahoe for a tour of local, High Sierra edible gardens on Sunday, September 13, 2015 from 9 am to 2 pm.
Get inspired by gardens of all shapes and sizes – from a beginner container garden to a high production permaculture greenhouse. Participants will leave with ideas for their own garden space and a few resources to get started!
We’ll begin at the Truckee Demonstration Garden located at the Truckee Regional Park and then proceed, caravan style, to a variety of Truckee home gardens in Sierra Meadows, Glenshire, Olympic Heights and Prosser. Light refreshments will be served throughout the tour. The tour will culminate with a delicious snack made by Picnic Catering at the new Truckee Community Farmers Market located in the TriCounties Bank Plaza. Please bring hats, sunglasses and water. Children are welcome to participate for free.
This event builds on Slow Food Lake Tahoe’s mission to reconnect our community to the enjoyment of local, seasonal and sustainable food by getting people to share ideas on how to grow their own good, clean and fair food. Tickets may be purchased at http://www.slowfoodlaketahoe.ticketleap.com/gardentour2015. Tickets are $10 for Slow Food Lake Tahoe members and $15 for non-members. Check in will begin at 8:30 am at the Truckee Demonstration Garden.
Slow Food Lake Tahoe offers the community an ongoing series of economically priced Skillshare Series workshops in cooking, gardening, food preservation and more. Earlier this summer, SFLT launched the Truckee Community Farmers Market on Sundays in the TriCounties Bank Plaza (where Sears is located) in partnership with Sierra Valley Farms.
For additional information about the Truckee Community Farmers Market visit http://www.truckeefarmersmarket.org/. The Organization also manages the Truckee Demonstration Garden in the Truckee River Regional Park, aimed at demonstrating high altitude gardening techniques and encouraging more residents of our region to grow their own food.
Slow Food Lake Tahoe’s mission is to reconnect people to the enjoyment of local, seasonal and sustainable food while educating the community about their vital role as participants in our food system.
