Maggie Stuckey, author of The Bountiful Container, explains everything you need to know to grow a delicious garden of vegetables, herbs, fruits, and edible flowers in containers. We all know how delightful it is to walk outside and pick ingredients for tonight’s dinner from our own garden. But what if you live in an apartment, with no real garden space? Solution: grow your garden in containers. It’s also a good solution for people whose regular garden has too little space or too little sunlight. And it’s a real help for gardeners with sore backs, tired knees, and other mobility concerns.
She starts by covering all the basics: types of containers, soil, fertilizer, watering, diseases and pests. Then Maggie will do a hands-on demonstration, potting up a container garden of mixed plants (veggies, herbs, edible flowers), explaining the details as she goes: how to choose the best plants for containers and how to create a small garden that is beautiful as well as productive.
And the best part: Everyone in the audience will have their names entered into a drawing, and some lucky person gets to take the finished container garden home.

We are overwhelmed with messages from politicians, news sources and other media. Join us for a timely workshop led by local librarian Donna Cohen.
Donna will present real world examples of political ads, news headlines, graphs and charts, the effect of word choice in messaging, statistical data, and other types of information to teach you to distinguish truth from fiction and become your own "fact-checker." Learn more at her Facebook page “Civics for Adults.”
