Garden Talk Series in Denton to Feature Presentation on Canning

Pack your lunch and head to the Denton Community Demonstration Garden this Friday from 12:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. for Garden Talks, an enjoyable series of lunch-hour garden talks and demonstrations.  This week’s presentation will feature a special discussion on canning and preserving. The series, which takes place on the 4th Friday of every month through October, is held during the Friday Downtown Denton Farmers’ Market so guests are able to shop for locally grown fruits & vegetables, herbs and baked goods.

Tables will be set up so that guests will be able to enjoy the garden talks and demonstrations during their lunch break. Monthly discussion topics range from gardening techniques to culinary creations inspired by the garden. The remaining fourth Friday dates for this season are September 28 – Canning and Preserving Vegetables, and October 26 – Composting.

The Denton Community Demonstration Garden, located by the municipal parking lot at 4th and Gay Streets in downtown Denton, is a community public space that showcases edible plantings, sustainable agricultural techniques, and garden ecology.  The initial plantings of the community garden involve Square Foot Gardening, a technique that allows gardeners to cultivate small but intensively planted gardens.  The garden also provides a venue for social and cultural exchanges through learning about food security, nutrition, and cooking.

If you are an individual, school group, club or organization that is interested in participating in the seasonal planting, maintenance, harvesting, food processing distribution or marketing necessary to sustain a productive garden, please call 410.479.1009 or email dentoncommunitygarden@gmail.com. For those looking to make a donation, there is also a wish list of gardening items online at www.dentoncommunitygarden.com.

The Denton Community Demonstration Garden has been made possible by funding from the Caroline Human Services Council and the Woman’s Club of Denton and through the support of countless volunteers and organizations.  Thank you for helping us plant the seeds for a better tomorrow.

Festivus Dentonius Series Invites People to Rediscover Downtown Denton

This year, a series of non-profit promotional events dubbed “Festivus Dentonius” was held jointly by local businesses and Downtown Denton Main Street. The activities, which ranged from a Dress Your Pet Parade and an Acorn Hole Tournament to a co-ed High Heel Race, brought residents and visitors alike to Denton to enjoy the free activities and rediscover the downtown community.

The inspiration for the event’s name comes from Dentonius the black squirrel, which became Denton’s official town mascot earlier this year.

“We want people to know that there is always something fun to do in downtown Denton, ” says Mike Owens, owner of Color ‘N’ Clay in Downtown Denton. “The Festivus Dentonius series has been a great way to bring people downtown and show them the great things happening in their own backyard.”

Residents and visitors can look forward to a fantastic lineup of Festivus Dentonius events in 2013!
