Participants are encouraged to bring in their questions.
Gardening and Rock Painting comes to the Garfield Library on Friday, March 24 at 6 p.m. Learn how painting rocks can fool pesky birds out of your garden. Participants are asked to bring a few “strawberry” sized rocks.
Come celebrate spring with the opening of the Palouse Library’s Seed Library on Saturday, March 25 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.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. If you are unable to attend Palouse’s Seed Library event, the St. John Library is launching their Seed Library at the St. John Stock Show scheduled for April 20-23. Visit the library’s booth at the Community Building to learn more.
Lastly, the Rosalia Library is hosting their annual Arbor Day Tree giveaway on Saturday, April 1 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thanks to generous donations from Thunderhawk Ranch and Friends of the Rosalia Library, the community is invited to select a free tree seedling (one per person) while supplies last. The little trees and shrubs come from the Palouse Conservation District plant sale and include evergreen and deciduous trees including a limited number of berry bushes.
