The celebration will be from noon to 2 p.m. at the garden at 328 E. Fifth St.
The Fifth Street Community Garden Harvest Celebration is free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to bring their own eating utensils, a lawn chair and food to share.
In case of rain, the party will move to First Step Family Support Center at 325 E. Sixth St.
The event is the last of the 2013 “Lunch in the Garden” monthly educational series sponsored by Washington State University Clallam County Master Gardeners.
Co-sponsored by Port Angeles Victory Gardens, it will include a walk through the garden, a potluck, demonstrations on seed saving and tool sharpening, and a pressure-cooker check.
Because of the bounty experienced in many Clallam County gardens this year, organizers are planning a produce exchange.
Local gardeners are encouraged to bring excess produce from their gardens to share with others; leftovers will be donated to the Port Angeles Food Bank.
Veteran Master Gardeners Laurel Moulton, Bob Cain and Jeanette Stehr-Green will discuss ways to keep vegetable gardens producing into the fall, curing winter squash and onions, and putting the garden to bed.
Moulton has been a Master Gardener since 2006 and is the Master Gardener program coordinator.
Cain joined Master Gardeners in 2009 and is president of the Master Gardener Foundation of Clallam County.
Stehr-Green has been a Master Gardener since 2003 and was the 2012 Veteran Clallam County Master Gardener of the Year.
All three have been growing vegetable and herb gardens for many years.
The Fifth Street Community Garden, located just off Peabody Street and across from City Hall, includes more than 50 individuals plots that are each 9 feet by 12 feet.
The garden was developed on city property in 2011 to connect people to the Earth and their community through growing food.
