Straw Bale Gardening with Ruth van Wijk May 2, 2016 at 7:00: Ruth van Wijk will present a Straw Bale Gardening workshop that will provide gardeners with the skills needed to become a successful straw bale gardener. Straw bales are the ultimate in container gardening, they create their own rich soil, generate warmth, and raise planting beds off the ground for easier access. “At the end of the growing season, they turn into marvelous compost. It doesn’t get easier than this!” Autographed copies of the book Straw Bale Gardens Complete by Joel Karsten will be available for purchase. Granby, CT based gardener van Wijk has been cultivating gardens indoors and out for over 40 years.

This event is sponsored by the Agawam Center Library Association. Please call 789-1550 x4 or register online at www.agawamlibrary.org.
