Starting from Seeds


 

Garden Workshop in The Norristown Library

 

This Spring, we will be holding a hands-on food landscaping series at the Montgomery Count Norristown Public Library. This series consists of four unique meetings independent from one another. You have the choice of attending all four workshops for $15 or only the one(s) you are interested in for $5 per workshop. You must register for these programs ahead of time. All of the following workshops will be held at the main library in Norristown at 1001 Powell Street in Norristown, PA. The individual workshops are as follows:
