A Fun Time at Jackson Gardens!
On August 14th, Jackson Gardens hosted the “Peak of the Season” Local Foods Potluck. Approximately 60 folks showed up with tasty morsels that were harvested or grown in the state of Alaska (or the local grocery store, if they were new to the local foods idea). Local musicians chipped in to provide musical entertainment, and there were plenty of places for the kids to play.
The Jacksons were amazing hosts, as they gave us a tour of their wonderful garden. It was fantastic to simply walk through the paths of blooming & beautiful flowers and experience the life of a fruit tree inside of their greenhouse. We are so grateful that the weather cooperated as well! A great article was written up about the experience in the Redoubt Reporter. Check it out!
