We host Master Gardener events at both our Porter and Salem Church branches. Here’s your chance to learn gardening from the best practitioners!
At Porter Branch, the Master Gardeners teach vegetable gardening as they prepare beds, weed, control pests, and harvest in our S.E.R.V.E. Garden on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays, 6:30-7:00.
At Salem Church Branch, the Master Gardeners hold clinics in the lobby to field your plant, turf, pruning, insect, and other garden-related questions on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays, 6:00-8:00.
