An open house and 90th birthday celebration for Durango resident and master gardener Marye Jackson will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Ohana Kuleana Community Garden, located in the Animas City neighborhood at 564 E. 30th St.
The family-friendly event will include garden tours at 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.; a pie-tasting contest from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.; and a toast to celebrate Jackson’s 90th birthday at noon.
The Garden Project of Southwest Colorado opened the community garden in 2013 as an effort to promote healthy living and organic growing in the community. The Hawaiian phrase “Ohana Kuleana” means “community responsibility” – or “we all own each other’s actions.”
Dogs are not allowed in the garden.
