Goin Native Therapeutic Gardens is hosting a free Family Fall Fest on Saturday, Oct. 22 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Reata Park, located at 28632 Ortega Highway.
Visitors can learn the basics of composting, vertical gardens, sharpening tools and creating a butterfly sanctuary during an array of free workshops, which run from 9 a.m. to noon. The day will also feature a fall festival plant sale, a variety of activities and crafts for kids, food and entertainment. A succulent pumpkin centerpiece workshop was recently added to the lineup with a cost of $30 per person.
Guests who donate a canned food item for Second Harvest Food Bank will receive a free pumpkin to decorate, while supplies last. (Free pumpkin decorating is separate from the pumpkin centerpiece workshop).
