Jamestown, NY – Late summer is the time for harvesting tomatoes, potatoes, squash, and berries.

“Late Summer Harvests” is the theme for the fourth in a series of five gardening classes presented by organic gardeners Scott and Pam Stoleson through Audubon Community Nature Center.

This hands-on, taste-buds-on workshop is set for 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, August 20, at the Stolesons’ home in Sugar Grove, Pennsylvania.

You may get to sample such distinctive items as Black from Tula tomato, kohlrabi, multi-colored carrots, and Ma Guan, also known as fuzzy gourd.

You will learn the tasks needed to keep the veggies coming in: tying up tomatoes, snapping suckers, monitoring mildews and blights, and squishing squash bugs.

The Stolesons have been raising some of their own food for more than 15 years. They estimate that they produce 85% of the vegetables, 50% of the fruit, and 10% of the nuts that they consume.

Keep in mind that you could get dirty.

Fee for the workshop is $16, $12 for Nature Center members. 

Enrollment is limited. Paid reservations are required by Wednesday, August 16, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or clicking through the Program page at www.auduboncnc.org.

Driving directions will be emailed to registrants on the Thursday before the workshop.

The final workshop on October 1, Fall Harvests and Putting Your Garden to Bed, will include preparing a meal from ingredients you will pick on arrival.

Audubon education programs are funded with support from the Carnahan Jackson Foundation, Jessie Smith Darrah Fund, Holmberg Foundation, Hultquist Foundation, and Lenna Foundation.

Audubon Community Nature Center builds and nurtures connections between people and nature by providing positive outdoor experiences, opportunities to learn about and understand the natural world, and knowledge to act in environmentally responsible ways.
