Gardening Series Continues

April 10, 2015
By BCPL

In collaboration with the ONE BOOK Community Reading Project, the Boyle County Public Library is offering a five-part Gardening Series this spring. The third installment in the series, "Lunch & Learn: Container Gardening," will be held on Tuesday, April 14th at 12:00 pm in the Community Room at the Library.


Presented by Alexis Amorese and James Ross, this program is ideal for those interested in learning how to grow a garden in a less conventional way. Those in attendance will learn how to start and grow plants and vegetables in containers. If a larger, traditional garden is more than you need, or if no space for a garden is available, container gardening may be the solution. Those attending are encouraged to bring their lunch with them to enjoy during the program.


During this event, the Library will also introduce its new Seed Bank program, where seeds can be taken and the associated planting literature can be checked out.
