On the Road Tour – Columbia Gorge
August 6, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$35
Join the WSU Clark County Extension Master Gardener program for a trip to the Columbia River Gorge.
Mon., Aug. 6, from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
We will be visiting Mt Adams Orchard, one of the oldest and largest fruit growing orchards in the Gorge near the base of the spectacular Mt Adams. See some pear trees that are 104 years old and still producing! Learn how they do it plus new ways of growing fruit.
Then we will go to Bingen to Vanguard Nursery to see where the bedding plants and baskets that we buy from stores such as Costco, Fred Meyer, and Grocery Outlet are grown.
After lunch we will visit Dickey Farms, located right along the Columbia River in Bingen. Dickey Farms is the oldest operating farm in Washington State and popular for their delicious corn that they grow and sell.
Our last stop will be at the Dickey Farms Store where we can purchase local produce or products made or grown in the Gorge area. This is where we can get our corn to eat for dinner and huckleberry pie for dessert!!
COST: $35 registration.
LUNCH: On your own at Beneventi’s.
