Save money, eat healthier and turn your thumb green when Cos Cob Library hosts "Plan Your Own Vegetable Garden," Thursday, April 23, at 2 p.m.
Mary Jo Bridge Palmer will discuss growing your own vegetables at Cos Cob Library, 5 Sinawoy Road. Palmer is a second generation gardener and owner of Sam Bridge Nursery and Greenhouse in Greenwich. She will demonstrate how to successfully lay out and plant your edible garden.
"Growing a vegetable garden is a great way to both save money and eat healthier," says Wendy Silver, Cos Cob branch librarian. "It's something that interests both men and women, and will help you get out of the house and enjoy those beautiful spring and summer days."
While many view gardening as a hobby that allows them to escape life's everyday pressures, a vegetable garden can also reduce a family's food budget and be a source of hard-to-find vegetables. Gardeners also prefer to grow their own vegetables because supermarket produce can not match the quality, freshness and taste of home-grown vegetables.
All are welcome. No registration is necessary. For more information, contact the Cos Cob Library at 622-6883.
