WSU Extension sponsoring programs at fair, Kitsap Harvest

Extension program also involved with court-ordered garden project

WSU Extension, which has been serving the citizens of Kitsap County since 1917, will once again be at the fair this year.

The 2021 Kitsap Fair and Stampede will take place through Aug. 29 at the fairgrounds. The fair-going public will be offered a comprehensive view of 4-H and its opportunities for youths and adults. Through the assistance of WSU Extension, 4-H youth has been working hard this year and will have it all on display at the fair.

Kitsap Harvest

Grow-A-Row is growing! Gardeners can donate produce at the Bremerton Farmers Market on Thursdays from 4-7 p.m. or at the Port Orchard Farmers Market on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

There are now two Neighborhood Captains hosting donation stations in Bremerton on Sundays. To find those locations, visit the map on the Kitsap Harvest website: kitsapharvest.org/growarow.php/.

Howe Farm Garden Project

The Kitsap Juvenile Department’s Howe Farm Garden Project is a court-ordered restorative program that provides year-round services to youth who live in Kitsap County. The project brings youth under court supervision into the garden where they learn how to cultivate, plant, grow and harvest — and follow an effort from start to finish.
