The University of Maine at Farmington plans to host a garden party from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, Aug. 21, in the UMF Campus & Community Garden.

The event is free and open to the public.

This summer’s student garden assistants plan to serve fresh herbal teas made from herbs grown in the garden, tea party biscuits, and cucumber sandwiches made with ingredients grown right on campus. They also will be giving garden tours.

The garden can be found where all the flowers are in bloom, behind the greenhouse between the Fusion Center and the Olsen Student Center.
