An Apple Tasting Event at
Portland Nursery, 5050 SE STARK

In the relative quiet between the two weekends of our annual Apple Tasting festival, the front greenhouse at Stark is transformed into a welcoming and interactive space for our elder gardeners to enjoy the afternoon, sponsored by Home Instead and Portland Nursery.

There will be activity tables where time can be spent visiting while working on pressed-flower crafts, planting crocus bulbs, getting ideas for fall patio containers. There will be a mini-apple tasting, with an assortment of familiar and unusual apple varieties to sample.
