This year’s gardeners will be bringing in their favorite dish made from items grown in their gardens to share with the public. These dishes will include many Russian, Asian, Hispanic and American items. The PUT-N-TAKE Table will be open – you bring something from your garden to PUT on the table and/or then TAKE something that someone else has left. The garden will supply drinks and other refreshments, will be making hot dogs and brats on the grill, will cook their famous plot-to-pot corn-on-the-cob, will provide tours of the community garden, and will offer advice on gardening in Arvada’s climate. There will also be a contest where attendees will be the judges and will select the best looking garden plot from among all the plots for the Gold, Silver, Bronze and New Gardener Shovel Awards. Many local merchants have also donated garden related items to be given out as gate (door) prizes and there will be free gift bags for the kids, free vegetable and flower seeds from the seed library and free herb plants and a scavenger hunt among the plots in the garden.
