New to growing edibles?

There will be lots of information and helpful Master Gardeners to get you started on successfully growing your own food.

‘Plant. Grow. Eat.’ workshops are scheduled throughout the day to inspire and provide education for new adventures in growing your own food.

  • 11:00am ‘Gardening Tips for the Beginning Gardener’ Get tips on how to ‘get growing’ with your very own vegetable garden. Learn just how easy it is to have nutritious veggies to harvest. Presenter: Sally Campbell, OSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteer.
  • 12:00pm ‘Growing Herbs’ Give your garden and kitchen a whole new dimension by growing fresh herbs. Learn proper care and tending of a variety of culinary herbs. Plus, lots of tips on how to enliven the dishes you put on the table with the simple addition of your very own freshly grown herbs. Presenter: Xuan Sibell, OSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteer.
  • 1:00pm ‘Gardening Inside the Box’ Growing an array of edibles in containers of all sizes - Shake up what you think might grow in a container – and even what a plant 'container' could be.  Get advice and information on suitable plant varieties, receptacles, and ways to maximize veggie and fruit production for any small space. Presenter: Megan Jamieson, OSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteer
  • 2:00pm ‘What’s Eating My Veggies? Get the low-down on common veggie-garden pests and how to deal with them. PLUS: Tools for the Beginning Gardener. Presenter: Sally Campbell, OSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteer.

Incredible Edibles! Make your wish list and check out the great selection of organic veggies and herbs that will be available for sale (see below). Note: sometimes nature happens and a crop fails or veggies are too small to sell – so this list only reflects the plants we have ordered. Availability may vary the day of the sale. Come early for best selection!

Attract beneficial insects with Disco Marigolds or Gem Marigolds grown by Multnomah County Master Gardeners. Disco Marigolds are compact, heavily-branched plants. Early, rain tolerant, great for bedding and baskets. Height 8” to 12”. Offering Disco Red, Disco Yellow, and Disco Marietta (yellow with a bronze center). Lemon Gem and Red Gem Marigolds are a profusion of single blossoms on compact mounds of lacy, scented foliage which also attracts beneficial insects to your garden. Blossoms are edible and deer-resistant. Super for containers, beds and culinary use. The single blossoms of both varieties are great for attracting pollinators to the garden.

Incredible Entertainment

Fun, lively, musical entertainment will add to this celebration of homegrown goodness.

  • 11:30am We are thrilled to announce that Possom Six-Pack will be joining our Incredible event. Get ready for old-time music from the American tradition as well as Irish tunes. Get ready for some snappy toe-tapping tunes!

A Little Sun! You read it right. A Little Sun will grace the Incredible event, even if it is cloudy! Artist, Jessica Soleil, will be selling her lovely, original illustrations that offer inspiration and highlight veggie goodness. You can learn more about Jessica and see her whimsical product line here: a little sun
