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.
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.
The library garden is a community project to demonstrate sustainable, chemical-free gardening in the public. Produce is donated to Diakonia, a shelter serving the homeless in our area. Join Master Gardeners and other volunteers for a final harvest and preparation of the garden for the winter.
Stop by and learn about rain barrels, composting and cover crops, and for seasonal snacks made straight from the garden. All ages are welcome and no experience is needed to help. For more information, call the Berlin Library at 410-632-1200 (extension 1302).
