Friends of the Parks will present a program titled “Taste and Tour Our Community Garden” at 10 a.m. Saturday at J.S. Mack Community Center, South Sixth Street, Indiana.

Parking is available near the garden. Led by Indiana Community Garden members and Master Gardeners, activity stations will provide information on topics that include creating a garden, identifying plants, eating garden goodies, composting and using rain barrels to collect water.

Fresh foods prepared from the garden produce will be available to sample.

The program will include hands-on children’s activities.

Registration for this program is highly recommended, and will be used to reschedule the program in case of rain. To register and obtain further information, call Indiana County Parks & Trails at (724) 463-8636, or email Indiana Community Gardens at icg15701@gmail.com.
