While it's true that most (successful) gardens have a lot of green in them, there are ways to make your garden more green--that is, earth-friendly! Using compost instead of commercial fertilizer and collecting rainwater for watering are two great ways to bring an environmental emphasis to your garden.
We'll have hands-on demonstrations of both compost and rainwater capture tonight at our Have a Green Garden program! We'll also be taste testing our harvest--everything from basil to tomatoes and watermelon to flying saucer squash. It will be fun for the whole family--don't miss it! 7PM tonight (Tuesday) at the Library's plot in the Squaw Creek Community Gardens, 2 blocks south of 4th Street on S. Maple Ave.: Have a Green Garden!
