Happy Earth Day! We are celebrating by sharing everything you need to grow a plant: a little biodegrable pot, some potting soil and a couple of seeds for either green beans or sunflowers.
Plant kits are free to anyone of any age while supplies last. We will also be offering a fabulous prize to whoever grows the most magnificent plant, so be sure to share a picture with us when your plant is flourishing!

It is no secret, pollinators are in trouble. How can we address the pollinator crisis in our own yards? It can be as simple as planting the right flowers. Come and join Lisa Reuvers, University of Minnesota Master Gardener as she presents “Flowers for Pollinators” put together by the University extension to help combat dwindling habitat and provide nourishing food.

Spring is springing out all over! We’ve been growing seeds at the library. Miss Susan planted a sunflower, a pea and a lima bean.
Day one: All quiet.
Day six: Starting to sprout.
Day eight: Check out those shoots!
Day 10: Look at that sunflower reaching for the sky!
If you want to plant some seeds of your own, join us April 16 or 19 for a spring story time.
