Library Holds Plant and Nature Classes
Linebaugh Public Library System announces a new set of classes for everyone wanting to learn more about nature, gardening, plants, vegetables and more!
“I just want everyone to enjoy growing plants with ease. Some people make it so difficult and it’s not,” said Emily Arnold, who will oversee the classes (additional classes will be taught by other master gardeners). Arnold has a degree in ornamental horticulture and landscape design, as well as 30 years experience working with plants and flowers.
The first class will take place on Jan. 31 from 10 – 11 a.m. in Linebaugh’s Reading Room. Classes are open to the public free of charge and no preregistration is required, though participants are asked to bring paper and a pen. Classes will continue through October on the last Saturday of each month.
January’s topic will be “How to Keep Houseplants Green During the Winter Season.” Over the next nine months topics will include birds and butterflies, insect identification, gardening techniques, composting and vegetables.
