KFPL Live Designing an Edible Landscape

Designing an Edible Landscape

Whether you have a small space or a large lot, you can have a beautiful garden and eat it too!  Edible landscapes are a low-maintenance, sustainable method of growing food for yourself, providing a habitat for wildlife, and beautifying your home. Joyce Hostyn of the Rideau 1000 Islands Master Gardeners will explain how to get started on your own edible landscape.  This free talk is open to all adults and teens, but seating is limited. To avoid disappointment, please register in advance. Takes place on Saturday, March 31, Calvin Park Branch, at 2:30 p.m.  Registration opens online at and by phone at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 17.

(Plus another two to three hours of homework per week!)  Author Jean Rae Baxter will meet with a small group of seniors at 2 p.m. at Isabel Turner every Thursday from March 29 through April 26 to show how to write about life experiences using the tools of fiction.  By the end of the fifth week, each participant will have a story to share with friends and family.  Seating is limited, so please register in advance, any time after 9 a.m. Saturday, March 17.  KFPL membership is required to attend the workshop.
