Sprague, Lindsay (Lynn) Dig - In Gardening Life Skills- Food,
Nature- Gardening,
Science
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! This program is suitable for the 2019 summer reading program.
