• A get-together for Sitka gardeners on Sept. 15

As the growing season winds down, a group of local gardeners is starting up a monthly get-together for interested Sitka gardeners. The group meets from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 15, in Room 106 of the University of Alaska Southeast-Sitka Campus on Japonski Island.

The get-together provides a venue for gardeners of all types (food and non-food), interests, and skills to informally exchange ideas, information, seeds and growing tips. Share and learn from other gardeners with no dues or commitments other than good fellowship. Sitka Gardeners plan to get together the third Tuesday of the month at UAS-Sitka. The UAS-Sitka Campus and UAF Cooperative Extension Service will organize the first gardeners’ get-together.
