'Harvest Fest' signals end of season at Learning Garden Lab
Those involved at the Portland State University "Learning Gardens Laboratory", across the street from Lane Middle School in the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood, held a Harvest Festival on October 18th to celebrate the year, as the growing season was coming to an end.
"Today is also the last day of our garden's weekly Farm Stand," remarked the organization's Lab Events and Fundraising Coordinator, Chanel Hason.
"We celebrate our community involvement and engagement," Hason said. "So, we're providing pumpkin-painting activities, and we have flower-bundle-making for both kids and adults. It's good, interactive fun – to bring the community together here, at the Learning Gardens Laboratory."
In addition to the activities inside a greenhouse building and at the Farm Stand, representatives of the Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association took the opportunity to speak with area residents, as well as other vendors.
The location is 6801 S.E. 60th Avenue, across from Brentwood Park between Duke and Flavel.
