September 21, 2015

Free event Oct. 10 at WSU facility in Puyallup offers tips, projects, kid-friendly fun

TACOMA, Wash. –
Learn how gardening can continue into the colder months at the Fall Family Garden Festival and Tree Sale. The free event happens Saturday, Oct. 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Washington State University Master Gardener’s Demonstration Garden, 2607 W. Pioneer Way in Puyallup.

Get fall gardening tips from WSU Master Gardeners, take part in a tree-planting workshop and enjoy free, healthy snacks. Children can enjoy kid-friendly games, music and art projects.

The sale will feature discounted pricing on a selection of deciduous, conifers and fruit-bearing trees. If you are in the market for large plants, you can bring your own truck and plan to load what you purchase, or free tree delivery is available for buyers who live in Pierce County.

Those who attend should dress for the weather and wear sturdy, supportive shoes, as the demonstration garden is a working site.

The festival is a partnership among several public agencies and non-profit organizations, including Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department, Pierce County, WSU Extension – Master Gardeners, Pierce Conservation District and others.
