The kick off class to our Summer Gardening Series is April 26th at 6:00 pm on the third floor of the library.
We welcome guest speaker, Sadie Barrett, who will get us going on gardening basics as well as garden design. This class is for beginners and for those with a little more experience who want to know about how to design your garden so as to not waste space.
A little about Sadie: Sadie Barrett is a gastronomist who was raised in Idaho on an off grid homestead on the edge of the Frank Church Wideness, the largest wilderness in the lower U.S. She learned gardening from her parents and has been cold climate gardening in her own garden for 20 years. She teaches master gardener courses, seed saving classes, fermentation classes, mentors youth in agriculture and has a commercial nursery license. Sadie founded the Idaho Heritage Tree project (preserving old strains of fruit trees) and is currently working on several new cider varieties of apples. Her work with apples is supported by MSU research facility in Corvallis, MT.
Sadie believes we are what we eat. She believes gardening is one of the best ways to obtain our our fullest potential in many ways.
