Spring Into Gardening

Spring into gardening with a little help from Whitman County Library. The Endicott, Palouse, Rosalia, St. John and Tekoa branches are offering free gardening classes, clubs, and tree starts giveaway during the month of March.

At the St. John Library, learn what’s in your garden on Sunday, March 10 at 3:30 p.m. Is it safe and edible for you and your family? Join us and let’s learn together.

Are you interested in joining with other gardeners for support and ideas? The Tekoa Library is hosting a Garden Group Start Up for gardeners of all interests and experiences on Tuesday, March 12 at 5 p.m. This year, the group’s emphasis will be growing and persevering food.

WSU Master Gardener, Judy Unruh returns to the Endicott Library to present Direct Sowing the Vegetable Garden on Saturday, March 23 at 10 a.m. Learn the basics of “where, when, what and how” of growing a vegetable garden, and what to plant now versus later.

The Rosalia Library is hosting their annual tree starts giveaway on Saturday, March 23  at 2 p.m. Thanks to generous donations from Thunderhawk Ranch and Friends of the Rosalia Library, the community is invited to select a free tree start (one per person) while supplies last. The little trees come from the Palouse Conservation District plant sale and include evergreen and deciduous, even fruit bearing trees.

Lastly, celebrate spring with the re-launching of the Palouse Library’s Seed Library on Saturday, March 30 at 10 a.m. There will be free seeds of all kinds from herbs and flowers to vegetables and native plants. Many packets were donated by the Pullman Building Supply and others were harvested and donated by local gardeners.
