Help Harvest Vegetables at the Berlin Library Garden

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

Are you interested in learning about sustainable gardening? You’ll be impressed by the amount of chemical-free vegetables grown by our local community members in the Ocean City area. The Berlin Library graciously opened their front yard to the idea of a community garden this past spring. Since then, volunteers have been tending to the crop on a regular basis.

All ages are invited to come celebrate a successful season of our local library’s community-based organic gardening at the Berlin Library Garden. After a long season of growing vegetables and herbs, those interested can harvest the garden’s crops. Cover crops will also be planted to get the garden ready for the winter season.

The garden community project is geared to demonstrate sustainable, chemical-free gardening to the public. All vegetables will be donated to Diakonia, a federation that constitutes a powerful ecumenical network of diaconal organizations and neighbors, and other local groups in need.
The garden harvesting will take place on Saturday, November 13th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Refreshments will be served and eco-friendly talk is encouraged. The Berlin Branch Library is located at 220 North Main Street, Berlin, MD.
