Garden Club meetings

Develop your gardening knowledge and skills. Participation is a combination of informational presentations and hands-on experience. Janet Macunovich, master gardener and designer of our Children's Sensory Garden, serves as our 'crew chief" for the gardening work bees, a great learning experience. She also is a presenter at many meetings or, through her vast network of contacts, connects us with knowledgeable presenters on a variety of topics.

No cost to participate beyond your time and efforts and work bees in the gardens on Library grounds. Attendance is open to non-members too!

Upcoming Meetings

  Join us for a work bee in the Children's Sensory Garden, crew leader Janet Macunovich, Master Gardener. Work will concentrate on preparing the beds for winter.

Rain Gardens


A purposely created low spot on a property can intercept run-off water or accept water directed to it from downspouts, sump-pumps and other sources. Populate that spot with plants that love occasional flooding and the ground there can handle even more water since a good deal will be drawn into plants, used in photosynthesis and then cool the area as it's released as water vapor. In this presentation: How to create, maintain and enjoy a rain garden! 

Where: Library's Community Room.
