Growing Microgreens
Nov 9 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

UMaine Cooperative Extension presents Growing Microgreens 101. Microgreens are herb, flower, or vegetable greens grown densely in trays and harvested just after they’ve put on their first true leaves. These tiny greens are packed with nutrients, color, and flavor. They are easy to grow indoors and can take between 7-28 days to produce a harvest. Participants will learn optimal growing conditions, the variety of seeds available and their flavor profiles; take home will include a container of microgreen sown seeds. For more information contact the BPL at 207-647-2472.

Make Your Own Pomanders
Nov 16 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

A pomander is a ball or perforated container of sweet-smelling substances such as herbs and spices, placed in a closet, drawer, or room to perfume the air; a piece of fruit, typically an orange or apple, studded with cloves and hung in a closet by a ribbon for a similar purpose.

They are a beautiful way to decorate your home. Cherie Knight will be providing apples, oranges, cloves, and presentation ideas for you to try. Funding for this workshop is provided by the Friends of the Bridgton Library.
