Garden Club meetings

Develop your gardening knowledge and skills. Participation is a combination of informational presentations and hands-on experience. Janet Macunovich, master gardener and designer of our Children's Sensory Garden, serves as our 'crew chief" for the gardening work bees, a great learning experience. She also is a presenter at many meetings or, through her vast network of contacts, connects us with knowledgeable presenters on a variety of topics.

No cost to participate beyond your time and efforts and work bees in the gardens on Library grounds. Attendance is open to non-members too!

Capturing Garden Beauties in Pictures


  Join us for a work bee in the Children's Sensory Garden.


  Enjoy gorgeous garden images as you learn professional horticultural photographer Steven Nikkila's simple methods for taking pictures of flowers, birds, butterflies and other garden beauties. Great for anyone with any camera or camera-phone. You will see how to capture fleeting beauty, frame the best shot, set up striking before-and-after shots, plan a dramatic sequence to show seasonal change or differences over the years, and correct for less-than-perfect light or subject matter. 

Where: Library's Community Room.

2017 Children's Craft Programs

  • Making Bird Feeders for the Garden

  • Making Scarecrows for the Garden

    Scarecrows have a long history in our gardens. We had a lot of fun learning about this and making a scarecrow for our gardens at home.
