Look at the schedule for this Saturday’s Open House at Luscher Farm at 125 Rosemont Rd. and you’ll realize that a lot more happens down on the farm than just growing crops.
The festivities are designed to celebrate the end of summer and give Lake Oswegans an opportunity to cultivate a relationship with this piece of land. So head on over this Saturday, September 7 between 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and go play in the dirt!
Here’s what you’ll find:
●Tours and tasting from the Luscher Farm demo garden with tips for shutting down your summer garden or planting a bountiful winter garden
●Tractor for kids to play on
●Petting zoo brought to you by Cisco and the kids
●Gourmet products sampling by The Oilerie
●Ribbon cutting at 3:00 p.m. for the Rosemont Trail connecting Lake Oswego to West Linn’s Marylhurst Park
●Clematis plant sale by the Friends of Rogerson Clematis Collection.
●Master Gardeners on hand with advice on organic gardening
●Tours, demonstrations and activities in the Children’s Garden with healthy snacks for sampling and inspiration for back to school lunches.
●Info about area owls and owl boxes recently installed at the farm
●Vegetable giveaway sponsored by 47th Avenue Farmers, Luscher’s local farming operation
●Scarecrow fashion show—check out the 92 scarecrows and vote for your favorite. See if the kids can find Sneaky Pete.
Cars will not be allowed on the farm to ensure everyone’s safety so park at the C3 Church at 17979 SW Stafford Rd. across from Luscher and either use the shuttle or walk along the Rosemont Trail to the farm.
