The Vista Lake Community Garden located behind the Pagosa Lakes Property Owners Association buildings at 230 Port Ave. still has some community garden beds open and there are plans to plant the remaining beds alongside community members on Sunday, July 10, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. 

Since the growing season in Archuleta County is fairly short, we will focus on a variety of plants that can still grow to maturity over the next few months. One of those plants is the squash blossom. We will be putting in a few beds of squash in the hopes to have a special harvest of blossoms to host a food demonstration later this summer of stuffed squash blossoms. 

Come join in on the fun; we will connect, spend some time weeding and planning the future tilled site where we will be able to produce a larger quantity of food during future growing seasons. All are welcome.
