Save the Date: May 11th is Garden Planning at BPL

Please join us on Saturday, May 11th, 10:00-11:30 for the UMaine Cooperative Extension Garden Planning workshop. Participants will learn how to evaluate their site for a vegetable garden, create a year-long planting schedule, plan your crop rotation, succession plantings, and cover crops. Participants take home their own plan. Funding provided by the Friends of the Bridgton Library. For more information contact the BPL at 207-647-2472.

Also, please remember that we have seeds available for checkout here in our Special Collections. We ask that you return some seeds at the end of the season for next year’s gardeners to enjoy. The funding for the Seed Library project was provided by the Friends of the Bridgton Library.

Don’t have your own space for gardening? You may want to check with the Bridgton Community Center Community Garden to see if there are beds available for sharing. We also have some excellent books on container gardening if you have a shelf or porch you would like to use.
