Home and Garden briefs: Dig into organic gardening

A good way to learn about organic gardening is to work in a community garden hoe to hoe with the experts.

Spend time in the Rancho Mark West garden, while also enjoying music, crafts, hiking and potlucking, during an "Afternoon Family Garden Party" Sept. 14.

Put on by LandPaths, the event includes working in the garden, with time to "Ask a Farmer." A hike with creek exploration and a potluck feast incorporating fresh veggies from the garden make this a full-on family event. 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. 7125 St. Helena Road, Santa Rosa. RSVP at landpaths.org.
