How Does Your Garden Grow?

What could be more basic to our well being than food - its sources and its quality? If you have been contemplating becoming a home farmer, even on a very small scale, the Armstrong Library can help.

For the next few weeks, we will be offering a series of programs to help you make a solid start in growing your own food.

On Saturday, March 17, representatives from the Farmers' Market of Alcorn University will be on hand from 11 am to 1 pm to discuss how to get started.
On Thursday, March 22 at 4pm, the program will feature choosing healthful snacks, and Dr Brad LeMay, heart specialist, will speak on heart health and fresh foods.
More programs will be offered in April on the growing movement to choose foods grown locally. Dates and times will be announced soon.
This is the time to get your garden started, so join us for these informative programs. The Library has a number of books available to help you along the way. We'll all have a bounty of home-grown goodness to share later on! Call us for more information.
