Gardening on a Dime

Join us as we learn what it takes to turn your store bought vegetables into a garden you can rely on. We will learn techniques to harvest seeds and how to replant cuttings. You can learn more on Saturday, March 16th at 10:00 am at the library. This event is brought to you by the Canadian County Master Gardeners.
