Betty Sanders Shares Her Gardening Tips Saturday at the Medfield Library
Stop by the Medfield Public Library Saturday at 10:30 a.m. to see a presentation by Lifetime Master Gardener Betty Sanders on her "Tips for the Best-Ever Vegetable Garden."
Lifetime Master Gardener Betty Sanders will present “Tips for a Best-Ever Vegetable Garden” at the Medfield Public Library on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. There is no charge to attend the program, which is sponsored by the Medfield Conservation Commission.
Whether you’re a novice gardener or an experienced one, you’ll come away from this presentation knowing more about designing a garden, choosing what to plant, and caring for your crops.
If you’re interested in gardening but lack the space or sunlight, there are eight unclaimed plots at the Medfield Community Garden on Plain Street. Plots are available on a first-request basis through registration at Town Hall.
Plots come in 15'x20' and 20'x30' sizes; sufficient to keep a family in vegetables all summer. The garden has already been plowed and compost added. All you do is plant your seeds and then maintain the garden for the season. There are plenty of 'old hands' around you, ready to offer guidance if you have questions. There is water on site, as well as additional compost and wood chips to create paths within your garden and between gardens. Registration continues through April 6. Small plots are $15 for the season; large plots are $20. If you have not previously had a Community Garden plot, there is a one-time $20 registration fee. To claim a plot, go to the reception desk at Town Hall.
