Growing Edibles Vertically

April 13th, 2012 · 1 Comment · City Library, Events, Main Branch, News

Do you have limited space in which to grow vegetable plants and edibles?  Or live in the city where your growing space is limited?  Then perhaps this gardening program is for you! “Growing Edibles Vertically” is a new lecture and slide presentation by well known horticulturalist, Margaret Hagen, of the U.N.H. Cooperative Extension. Join us on Tuesday, May 1st for a slide presentation and discussion on growing your edibles in small spaces, in containers, and making “living walls” upon which to grow your edibles.  So plan to join us on Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM in the Winchell Room of the main library-and bring you plant questions and your green thumbs!  For more information or to sign up for this program please call the library at 624-6550 X320 or X319 and speak with Yvonne.

See you at the library!
