Hughes Roberts, a certified square-foot gardening instructor, will give a program on the square-foot gardening method created by Mel Bartholomew. The method uses only 20 percent of the space a conventional row garden does and takes less space, work and water. And, it can be done on patios and decks.
This Giving Garden program is a joint initiative of the Haywood County Public Library, Haywood County Cooperative Extension Center and the Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program, and it’s supported by the Friends of the Library and the Master Gardener Volunteer Association.
