Let's Learn @ the Library
March's Theme: Gardening
This time of year — springtime — is a wonder-filled time of renewal, hope and satisfaction.
We’re mostly compelled to get out, put a seed in the ground and create life.
Gardening combines the best of all of these urges and provides a tangible reward for effort and faith as shoots push up out of the Earth and flowers bloom before your eyes.
It’s also evidence of skill in balancing sunshine, water, nutrients, love and protection on the part of the gardener.
Learn to garden well, to get a higher yield, use less water and develop a life-sustainable skill using books like these written by experts who can help you grow that zucchini!
Central Utah Gardens at 355 W. University Parkway in Orem offers free classes that include how to landscape, grow berries, perennials and vegetables. Register by calling 801-222-0123.
