Free Gardening Books available May 1 Class

Posted by on Apr 27, 2018 in CurrentClass, Messages

Hello Class,

We have a collection of gardening books that were given to the Garden Helpline.  A helpline committee has sorted through the collection and cataloged the books will be using for the helpline.  We still have many books left.  On Tuesday, May 1 starting a 9:30 before class, at the break or after class, you are welcome to peruse the books and take home any books you are interested in for free. You might want to bring a bag or empty box to carry home your treasures!

The remainder of the books will be donated to local libraries for their community book sales.

Hello Class,

The handout for Michele’s lecture on Stormwater Green Infrastructure is posted under handouts on the class webpage.   When you open it , double click on the first slide and you should be able to view the whole presentation.

See you next Tuesday for “Ticks and Lyme Disease” and “Meeting the Demonstration Garden Committee Chairs”.  Please review the Demonstration Garden overview handout that was distributed yesterday.  It was on the back conference room table by the handout box.

Have a good week!
