All proceeds will go towards furthering the Wrangell Community Garden efforts.
Starting before 10 am, kind-hearted individuals are encouraged to donate vegetables, fruits, baked goods, foraged/gathered items that will be available for others to purchase through donations. All these items will be submitted for the "Best of __" judging, with categories including: "Biggest", "Most Colorful", "Oddball", and "Best in Show". Remember to bring a bag for the goodies you take away with you.
A soup and stew contest will begin judging at 11 am with a surprise Wrangell celebrity panel, and all soups/stews entered will be served to the public beginning at noon. To submit a soup/stew, arrive with serving utensil and soup/stew before 11 am. To enjoy the bounty of the soups/stews, bring your own eating container and receive unlimited refills for $2, or purchase a container for $3 at the event.
Booths will abound at the event with a little bit of everything:
A Kids' Corner booth will be set up to keep the little ones entertained while teaching them about harvesting.
Expect a Wrangell Community Garden booth with slideshows from our past year, information on how to garden in Southeast Alaska and how to apply for a garden next year.
Traditional foods booth will exhibit how to forage/gather/hunt for your harvest year round.
