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!
