Ashland: Visit Three Groups at One Booth on Ashland Day« Back to Events
This year, Ashland Community Gardens, Ashland Farmers’ Market and Transition Ashland will host a one-stop booth on Ashland Day at Stone Park, Sept. 21. An annual town celebration bringing hundreds of people of all ages to Stone Park, Ashland Day is set to begin at 9 a.m. and go to 4 p.m.
Visitors can sign up for newsletters and the garden bed waitlist, enter a raffle to win gift certificates to Ashland Farmers’ Market and view an interactive display, which answers the question, “Can I recycle that?”
In addition, there will be tours and a scavenger hunt at Ashland Community Gardens, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., behind the gazebo. Visitors will also be able to view artwork inspired by the gardens and the butterfly garden brimming with colorful perennials and annuals. Families can tour 56 garden beds, and see how the old tennis courts have been transformed into a colorful, productive organic vegetable and flower garden. At both the booth on the field and the garden site, Ashland residents can sign up to be on the waiting list for a garden bed in 2014 for the Stone Park garden and possibly for a larger in-ground garden, which ACG hopes to establish soon.
