Many of us grow our own vegetables to ensure that we are serving our families healthy food. But are we bringing more to the table than nutritious food? Join Bob Falconer, OSU Extension Service Master Gardener as he shares good agricultural practices that help you identify possible sources of contamination in the way you grow and handle your garden produce. Topics include identifying the sources of contaminants in the soil, water, animals in the garden, tools, harvesting techniques and personal hygiene. Management techniques to minimize possible sources of contamination will be shared.


The Summer Reading Program is here! We're kicking-off our annual summer-long program for children, teens and adults all day on June 6.

Join us for a concert with The Harmonica Pocket in Cannery Square, an Upcycled T-shirts program, or for an Altered Art craft at Veteran's Park. See details below.
