Welcome fall at LTCC garden Sunday
This year’s Autumn fest is Sept. 23, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Lake Tahoe Community College Demonstration Garden. Admission is free.
Celebrate the changing of the season and delight in the pleasures of Tahoe’s Fall colors. Autumn Festival features two speakers discussing garden and yard preparation for the winter and planting in the fall. Performers will take the stage playing Bluegrass and encouraging dancing amongst the leaves.
Learn how to create decorations out of yard clippings. Take a guided tour through the garden to learn about native vegetation. Purchase fall goodies from the bake sale. Check out the environmental booths or take a stroll to see what vendors are presenting.
Kids are welcome to bob for apples, create leaf rubbings, fasten pine cone bird feeders, have their face painted, and check out the pumpkin patch. Creations from the Scarecrow competition put on by the Environmental Magnet School will be displayed and auctioned. The event is seen as a great opportunity for families to have fun while learning to prepare for the winter.
Autumn Fest is sponsored by Lake Tahoe Community College, Tahoe Resource Conservation District, South Tahoe Public Utility District, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, and South Tahoe Garden Club.
