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!

2017 Children's Craft Programs

  • Making Bird Feeders for the Garden

  • Nature during winter can make it hard for animals to find food. Several kids joined us on Sunday, February 12th to make bird feeders - one for the birds in the Library's garden and one to take home for your the birds in their yard.
  • 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.
