The Woodmont Library is celebrating the 5th anniversary of its wildly successful public garden. Created in 2012 by Children’s Librarian Deborah Sandler, each year it just gets better and better. Thanks to this year’s Children’s Librarian Robin Howe, we are continuing the tradition. The peas and kale are ready and the strawberries are coming on fast. Patrons and staff are anticipating juicy tomatoes in the summer and potatoes soon thereafter.
New this year to Woodmont is a Seed Library. Patrons can take seeds from the old card catalog cabinets and bring some back in the fall to keep the lending library happening. The seed project has been so successful that we are awaiting a new batch of seeds from our generous donor: Territorial Seed Company.
In addition to the garden, there are monthly programs relating to growing. The seed saving program was a hit as was the pot painting party. Still to come are an Eric Ode vegetable gardening concert and a worm show by author Lisa Taylor. Come see what’s growing at the Woodmont Library!
