Grow Organic Gardening Series Coming in February
Are you thinking about a garden for next spring? You can spend the winter planning for spring! An upcoming program through the Knox County Public Library will help you learn how to garden, how to convert from conventional to organic, and how you can still have a garden without loads of space, time, money, or energy. “Grow Organic: Gardening from the Ground Up” will be offered free of charge just in time for you to plan your new garden. The series will take place every Monday evening in February in the Fortnightly Club building. Each session will have a general topic, presented with a wealth of information and helpful resource lists as well as some practical, hands-on projects. The sessions will be fun and interactive: feel free to contribute your questions or answers and to share your own gardening experiences, observations and insights.

Sessions will be as follows:

Feb. 2: What’s It All About? - an introduction to what organic gardening is.
Feb. 9: The Most Important Thing: Soil - learn how you can develop healthy soil as the basis of healthy gardening.
Feb. 16: Planning Ahead - how to think about and plan your garden and prepare for gardening - interesting methods you may not have heard about!
Feb. 23: Getting Started: Seeds - gardening can start in winter! How to select, buy, and start seeds for the garden you’ve planned.

You can sign up for any or all of the February sessions, starting in December 2008, at the Main Circulation Desk, or by calling the library at (812) 886-4380. Mark your calendar and start looking forward to growing things in 2009! (Note: sessions may continue later in the spring with more topics.)

The series will be presented by Terri Talarek King and Stacye Johnson.  Terri has been gardening organically for 27 years and is a certified Grow Organic Educator through the Grow Organic Educator Series in Bloomington, Indiana.  Stacye Johnson is a Purdue Extension Service Educator.
