“Late Summer Harvests” is the theme for the fourth in a series of five gardening classes presented by organic gardeners Scott and Pam Stoleson through Audubon Community Nature Center.

This hands-on workshop is set for 1-3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 20, at the Stolesons’ home in Sugar Grove, Pennsylvania. Driving directions will be emailed to registrants on the Thursday before the workshop.

You may get to sample such distinctive items as Black from Tula tomato, kohlrabi, multi-colored carrots, and Ma Guan, also known as fuzzy gourd.

You will learn the tasks needed to keep the veggies coming in: tying up tomatoes, snapping suckers, monitoring mildews and blights, and squishing squash bugs.

The Stolesons have been raising some of their own food for more than 15 years. They estimate that they produce 85% of the vegetables, 50% of the fruit, and 10% of the nuts that they consume.

Keep in mind that you could get dirty.

Fee for the workshop is $16 for the public and $12 for Nature Center members.

Enrollment is limited. Paid reservations are required by Wednesday, Aug. 16, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or clicking through the Program page at www.auduboncnc.org.

The final workshop on Oct. 1, Fall Harvests and Putting Your Garden to Bed, will include preparing a meal from ingredients you will pick on arrival.
