Cold weather is right around the corner, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to ignore your garden. Here are a few fruit and veggie-oriented events to inspire gardening in the colder months. From 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, Sept. 23, the Lane County Master Gardener Association Fall Festival is taking place. The event includes classes on food preservation techniques, growing fruit trees and fermentation. There will also be a bake sale, book sale and plant sale as well as a plethora of local vendors to check out and kids’ activities. The festival takes place at the River Road Park and Recreation Center (1400 Lake Drive) It’s FREE. Another option to check out local fall food is the Fall Harvest Food Fest. It’s a community fundraising event put on by Junction City Local Aid (JCLA) and will feature food and drink from local businesses as well as a chance to tour JCLA’s pantry and warehouse and learn about direct assistance in the form of food. That event takes place from 1-4 pm at the JCLA service building (210 E. 6th Avenue, Junction City.) Tickets are $20-$25 and kids under 12 get in for FREE.  — Meerah Powell

The real-life stories of Lane County immigrants have been woven into a new play, Now I Am Your Neighbor, which receives a staged reading this weekend at Very Little Theatre’s Stage Left. Written by local playwright Nancy Hopps and directed by Carol Dennis, the play — inspired by an original piece, “We Are Your Neighbors,” that premiered 20 years ago — features the narratives of people who have emigrated to the Northwest from around the world, including Chile, Vietnam, Syria, Mexico and Palestine. “In my 40-plus years in theater,” Dennis says, “this is the first time I have directed a production with a cast predominantly comprised of minority and underrepresented people … Through this unique theater experience, I am also hopeful that our audience will be moved to re-envision what it means to be neighbors in a community and country that is becoming increasingly more diverse.” Now I Am Your Neighbor is being produced by Community Alliance of Lane County (CALC) in partnership with Minority Voices Theatre, with proceeds going toward immigrant support services as well as the Islamic Cultural Center. The one-hour play will be followed by a community discussion, and accompanied by a photo exhibit of Lane County immigrants.

Now I Am Your Neighbor, a staged reading, plays 7:30 pm Friday and Saturday, Sept. 22-23, and 2 pm Sunday, Sept. 24, at Very Little Theatre’s Stage Left. $5-$25 suggested donation at door (no one turned away for lack of funds); for further info, visit calclane.org or call 541-485-1755. — Rick Levin

McMenamins High Street Brewery and Café is hosting its 20th Annual High Street Mid-Valley Brewfest on Saturday. High Street will not only be offering beers of its own for people to try, but more than 10 other local breweries will be offering up cold brewskis and beverages — including Coldfire Brewing, Sam Bond’s Brewing, Claim 52 Brewing and Wildcraft Cider Works to name a few. Attendees can also take a tour of High Street’s brewery from 1 pm to 7 pm. The event is family-friendly, so attendees are welcome to bring their kids to enjoy a bite to eat and live music by musical guests Daniel and the Blonde and Adam Michael Goldthwaite will be performed from 2 to 4 pm and 7 pm to “late.”

The 20th Annual High Street Mid-Valley Brewfest is from 11 am until “late” Saturday, Sept. 16, at McMenamins High Street Brewery and Café (1243 High Street). The event is all ages, but attendees must be over 21 to drink. Tasters are $1.50 per token, $4 for a glass and $17 for a glass and 10 tokens. Admission to the event is FREE.  — Meerah Powell
