The weather outside is “frightful” but the DuBois Public Library can offer a bit of spring and a cup of coffee to the winter weary. As part of the library’s “Lunch and Learn” program the Down to Earth Garden Club will be doing a series of discussions on subjects related to gardening. The first of these will be held Thursday, February 7th at noon in the downstairs conference room.
There will be a slide presentation on all that is needed to create a fairy garden. These popular miniature landscapes are planted as either as an indoor container garden, an outdoor container garden or an inground planting. The Thursday program will concentrate on indoor fairy gardens. There will be information on pots, plants, soil, decorations and general care. All of the needed components will be on display and an actual fairy garden will be designed and planted. If time permits outdoor fairy gardens will be discussed.
Dessert, coffee and tea will be provided. Attendees are invited to bring lunch if the so wish. These will be informal programs and audience participation is encouraged. There is no fee and no reservations are needed. Future programs, on a monthly basis, will include but not be limited to “Air Gardens” and “Fuss Free Perennials.”
