25th Anniversary of the GrassRoots Garden’s Groundbreaking!

September 11, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm

Coinciding with this special anniversary year, GrassRoots will be featured as part of BRING Recycling’s Home and Garden Sustainability Tour on September 11 from 10am-4pm. GrassRoots is a free site on the tour, and we encourage everyone who has been a part of building and caring for this garden over the last 25 years to come and celebrate together! The day will feature live music, guided and self-guided tours, tasty treats from the cob oven, workshops on pesto making, adaptive and container gardening tools and techniques, and a weed identification walk.

As part of the celebration, we are offering another opportunity to pre-order GrassRoots Garden 25th Anniversary commemorative t-shirts. We have more colors to offer as well as aprons and shopping totes. All will be available for pick-up and can be paid for on the day of the BRING tour.

The beet will be a burgundy red, the leaves will be green. On the Dark Chocolate shirts the lines and lettering will be white and the beet will have no color.

Backside will say:  25 years and still growing

Look at the options and order.

All pre-orders need to be received by August 23rd to be picked up at the BRING Tour on September 11.

We look forward to seeing you at the Garden!

ALSO! Vegetarian Potluck and music provided by local band Steel Wool, Acoustic Rock Reborn-Direct from the Oregon Country Fair.  Please bring a vegetarian dish to share, table settings, chairs and/or blankets.  We hope to see many of the amazing people who have been a part in creating and caring for GrassRoots Garden over the years. September 11, 4:30-7 at GrassRoots.
