.... L . I: L i Ii  1 . Page A-16 - Mason County Journal - Thursday, July 3, 2014 MASTER GARDENER Community gardens benefit neighborhoods he commu- nitygarden and food bank garden at Catalyst Park is at the intersection of Eighth Street and Harvard Avenue in the Angleside area of Shelton (off Turner Avenue). There are many advantages to hav- ing a community garden in your neighborhood. Studies indicate multiple benefits to a community garden: Stress: A 2011 study published in the Journal of Health Psychology showed findings that provided the first experimental evidence that gardening can promote By JEANNE REHWALDT relief from acute stress. Community De- velopment: A study by the New York University School of Law concluded "We find that the open- ing of a community garden has a statis- tically significant positive impact on residential proper- ties within 1,000 feet of the garden, and that the impact increases over time. We find that gardens have the great- est effect in the most dis- advantaged neighborhoods. Higher-quality gardens have the greatest positive effect. Finally, we find that the opening of a garden is associated with other chang- es in the neighborhood, such as increasing rates of hom- eownership, and thus may be serving as catalysts for economic redevelopment of the community." Nutrition: A Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior study showed that "Adults with a household member who participated in a community garden con- sumed fruits and vegetables 1.4 more times per day than those who did not par- ticipate, and they were 3.5 times more likely to consume fruits and vegetables at least five times daily." If you are interested in learning about nutrition, WSU Extension Food Sense Will be offering four free nutrition classes at the Com- munity Garden at Catalyst Park this summer. Join us at the regularly scheduled gar- den workshop from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at Catalyst and learn about taking these lessons and have a tour of the garden. Speaking of garden tours: The WSU Master Garden- ers of Mason County hosts its annual garden tour on from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 12. All gardens are located in the Shelton area and include private gardens, Catalyst Park, and the WSU Extension office beds and rain garden. Tickets cost $12 and are available at Hunter Farms in Union, Laurie's Gifts and Liquor Store in Hoodsport, Lynch Creek Floral, and Sage Book Store in Shelton, and Roadside Nursery in Bel- fair. The tour is self-guided and includes helpful Master Gardeners as docents at each garden. The theme of the gardens this year is the use of texture in the gar- dens. You will also notice artwork at every garden and enjoy many ideas for your own garden. Much bet- ter than Pinterest - real 3D gardening tricks for your own home.
