Open Garden and Judea Garden
Steep Rock Association’s Judea Garden will hold its annual Open Garden at Macricostas Preserve. Visitors, volunteers, and friends are welcome to explore the beautiful garden; enjoy refreshments; and learn about nettles and soils from summer interns Teddy Eichen and Matt Minicucci.
Judea Garden, a Steep Rock Association community project, plays a key role in serving the town of Washington, CT and beyond. What began as a small organic community garden in Washington has grown to serve people in surrounding towns including New Milford, Torrington, and Warren. What began as a handful of volunteers now involves dozens of hardworking gardeners, sponsors, local businesses, and community groups.
This year, Judea Garden will honor two local organizations who have been volunteering and growing crops since the first season in 2009: the Greater Washington Coalition of Jewish Life and the First Congregational Church of Washington
Date: August 26, 2017 3:00 PM-5:00 PM
Location: Macricostas Preserve | 124 Christian St., New Preston, CT
