Grow Your Own Food, Organically

Wanda Knapik, Director of the Bernardsville Community Garden and owner of My Local Garden, will discuss how to grow organic vegetables, herbs, fruits, nuts, and berries in your own backyard or a plot in a Community Garden on Thursday, May 23 at 7:00 pm at Bernardsville Public Library. 

"If trees blew down with the hurricane, you can now plant fruit trees or a vegetable garden in that sunny spot in your yard," says Ms. Knapik, "At the end of May, you can be planting tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and herbs.  Using organic practices will produce healthier, more nutrient dense food that tastes better than anything in the store." 

In this program, listeners will learn tips and tricks of planting and harvesting, connecting with nature, and enjoying the beauty and abundance created in their own backyards. At the end of the program, Ms. Knapik will answer any gardening questions they have.

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested.  Register online at www.bernardsvillelibrary.org and follow the link from Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
