Every-other Saturday from June 17 to August 12 the Green Valley Lake Community Garden will host the 2017 Summer Faire Series. In addition to our traditional evening concerts by the lake (5:30 to 7:00), we have many day-time activities. Starting at 10:00 in the morning, browse through the booths of craft vendors, quilt show displays, mosaic demos, pottery demos, or photography exhibits. Then from noon to 2:00 there will be speakers from various organizations giving educational talks on everything from fire safety to earthquake preparedness, drones, OHVs, snake safety and much more. In-between there may be a chili cook-off, a Pie Festival or a Strawberry Shortcake Day, or a cutest pet contest. Plus, the whole time our gardeners will stand by to give you a tour of the garden and answer any questions about how to grow organic veggies at this high altitude. All of the concerts and fun activities are free, but if you would like to give a donation, that would be greatly appreciated. Bring a lawn chair. Below is the schedule so far. Bands will be announced soon.
