On an overcast but hot day, people gathered last Saturday, June 27, at the annual Altadena Community Garden Picnic.
By Caroline Ducout
While it drizzled at times, locals (mostly seniors and few kids) and dignitaries mingled around at the open house event with home-style food made from fresh fruits and vegetables grown in the Garden, tasty barbeque (meat was prepared three days in advance,) garden tours, and live music.
The picnic, located inside the gates of the Garden, had tables set up and decorated with seasonal flowers.
The two-and-one-half acre garden sits on the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Palm Street. It holds 72 plots for over 128 gardeners and associate gardeners.
