[ARCHIVED] October Fall Festival at Fort River Community Gardens

Fall leaf foliage in red and orange

Hello Fort River Gardeners, supporters and area residents. The Fort River Garden Circle is hosting a Fall Festival at the new Fort River Community Garden in Amherst. The event is for anyone, whether or not you're a gardener. If you think you may want to sign up for a plot next year, this is a great time to have a tour of the garden and meet some of the gardeners! 


Gardeners and interested community members, join us to celebrate the harvest and the inaugural year of the Fort River Community Garden!

We will have kid-friendly art activities, food, and opportunities to share stories and our visions for next season. ALL ARE WELCOME - you don’t have to be a gardener to attend.
