How Does Your Garden Grow?
Like the nursery rhyme asks, "How does your garden grow?" Not with silver bells and cockle shells all in row but with lettuce, basil, zucchini and other scrumptious vegetables! To see this lush garden for yourself, visit the Clarence Dillon Library's Bierwirth Children's Growing Garden. Under the supervision of Therese Crowley, Paul Spatz and Library Director Sandy Putnam, community children are weeding, watering, planting and tending the garden while harvesting its produce every week. Children of all ages are invited to help and observe its progress on Tuesdays and Fridays through October from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., weather permitting. This garden is made possible through the generous support of the Bierworth Family.
