The Clallam County Master Gardeners will share water conservation tips and fertilizing strategies at the next Second Saturday Garden Walk.
They will meet from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. June 10 at the Fifth Street Community Garden, 328 E. Fifth St., Port Angeles.
Master Gardeners Jan Bartron, Bob Cain, Laurel Moulton and Audreen Williams will detail some specific garden pests that are leaving holes and chewing plant parts, in addition to myriad other things that are present in a garden. Walks are full of lively, on-the-spot sharing of gardening knowledge and tips.
All Second Saturday Garden Walks are free and open to the public and occur rain or shine. The walks are ideal for people starting a vegetable garden for the first time and gardeners who are new to the Pacific Northwest, but they also are beneficial to the more experienced gardener.
The garden includes more than 50 individuals plots, each 9 feet by 12 feet. It was developed on city property in 2011 with a vision to connect people to the earth and their community through growing food.
The event is part of an educational series sponsored by WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners that started in April and runs through September. For more information, call 360-565-2678.
