June 2015 Newsletter
Summer is almost here and we hope you'll be enjoying some time enjoying in your garden. Fingers crossed that Mother Nature send us a bit more rain than we've had so far this spring.
We are offering Crafternoon, a gardening craft program for children in Grades 3-6 on Wednesday, June 3 at 4pm at the Fowler Branch of the Concord Free Public Library. Kids can make their own garden markers to keep track of which plants are growing. We'll also have bean and pea seeds to give away to young gardeners.
There will also be a Seed Saving Workshop on Friday, August 21 at 3pm. For those who can’t make the program we’ll be adding more detailed seed saving information to our website this summer so check back with us to see how to save the seeds from what you’ve planted.
If you're looking for a great new gardening book, check out our collection list here. Titles include "Improving your soil", "Epic tomatoes", and "Groundbreaking food gardens".
For the latest updates, be sure to follow our Facebook page.
