Cultivating Community: Grand Opening of the Porter Branch Community Garden

April showers bring summer vegetables! Join us this Saturday for the grand opening of our community garden.

The Porter Branch community garden will be a demonstration garden for the community and produce will go to SERVE.  Join us to learn more about local farming and how easy it is to grow a little or a lot of your own food. 

Watch the garden's progress on our Tumblr site: librarycultivatingcommunity.tumblr.com
 

Activities include:

  • A special story time and movie will be presented and children can pot a plant to take home.
     
  • Jeff and Ginny Adams of Walnut Hill Farm will have a table and information about local farming.
     
  • North Stafford High School Horticulture Program will have plants for sale
     
  • Free packets of seeds, both vegetable and flower, will be available compliments of the North Stafford County-Garrisonville Rotary Club
     
  • The Master Gardeners will answer your gardening questions
     
  • The Master Naturalists will have an information table
