LANCASTER — The Elm Avenue Community Garden team will host a cleanup, winter gardening class and potluck this Saturday, and local residents are invited.
The event will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 14, at the Elm Avenue Community Garden, located at 44841 Elm Avenue (near the corner of Elm and Milling) in downtown Lancaster. This event is free and open to the public.
Participants will help beautify the walkways for the winter growing period, according to organizer Kimble Deleon. The event will also include a free class, taught by Master Gardener Dave Mashore, on creating “hoops” to protect winter gardens. And attendees are encouraged to bring their favorite dish to participate in a potluck, Deleon said.
Assemblyman Tom Lackey and community leaders will attend the event to recognize volunteers for their year of service in 2015, according to Deleon.
Saturday’s event is part of an ongoing effort to build a better Antelope Valley for all residents by beautifying its gardens and parkways.
The Elm Avenue Community Garden is an organic community garden that grows and harvests vegetables, fruits and herbs to share with the community. This year’s garden projects included the installation of an art piece by local high school students and the creation and giveaway of 40 baskets to the Lancaster Senior Center.
