(Woodland, CA) – The Hanna and Herbert Bauer Memorial Community Garden will host two garden events in September, both free, sponsored by Yolo County Health Services Department and open to all.

On Saturday, September 6, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., expert canner Rick Boyd will be teaching a class on preserving tomatoes from the garden. This class will cover the basics of water bath canning, making sauces and making tomato jam. Pre-registration is required by noon on September 5.

Yolo County will celebrate the garden’s one-year anniversary on Friday, September 19, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The celebration will feature fresh foods from the garden, a showcase of garden successes in the past year and an opportunity to learn about the various activities and programs the garden offers. Join the garden staff, community gardeners, Yolo County leaders and community supporters for this festive event. RSVP preferred.

“The Hanna and Herbert Bauer Memorial Community Garden has been an asset to the community over the past year as a venue for residents to grow fresh produce or learn how to integrate gardens into their homes,” said Yolo County Health Services Director Jill Cook. “We are pleased with how successful the garden programs have been in the first year, and we look forward to further bringing the community together through garden activities in the years to come.”

All of the above events will take place at the Hanna and Herbert Bauer Memorial Community Garden, located on the west side of the Health Services building at 137 N. Cottonwood Avenue in Woodland. To register for the September 6 class or RSVP for the September 19 celebration, contact Robin Rocksvold at (530) 666-8528 or robin.rocksvold@yolocounty.org.
