Program Information

Program name: Dig - In Gardening
Program category: Life Skills- Food
Nature- Gardening
Science
Program length: 1 hour
Audience level: All ages
Audience size: Any
Program description: During the program, the presenter will help patrons plant their own square foot garden, using heirloom seeds. A 4x4 square area can be tilled on library grounds, a vacant lot, or local park with permission prior to the program for a garden site, or an alternative will be to use a contained box garden to inspire patrons of all ages to be aware of where their food comes from and to eat local. I will also talk about heirloom seeds and seed saving, do it yourself vertical hydroponics, and environmental conservation. Some libraries are hosting a community seed swap after the program to increase plant diversity and availability of great food for all. I think this is an AWESOME idea! Please email me with Programs in the subject line with any questions to be added to my live booking link. This program is suitable for the 2019 summer reading program.
Space/special requirements: If the library is able and willing, we can plant a real garden outdoors. Advance notice required, I am happy to till up a 4x4 foot space anywhere (it takes 10 minutes with the mantis tiller). Otherwise a 4x4 foot demo garden will be provided.
