Are you enjoying fresh vegetables from your garden? Did you know that you can keep gardening well into the fall?   

If you are interesting in extending your gardening season, attend the Lewisburg Community Garden's Fall Extension Gardening workshop. Bucknell Biology Professor Mark Spiro will cover a variety of topics including cold hardy crops, using row cover and cold frames, and best practices for fall gardening. 

The workshop will be held on Thursday, July 31, at 7 p.m. at the Public Library for Union County located at 255 Reitz Blvd. The workshop is free and open to the public; registration is not required.

This workshop is part of a continuing monthly workshop series offered by the Lewisburg Community Garden and the Public Library for Union County. A different gardening workshop will be offered each month through September of 2014.

A joint project between Bucknell University and the Borough of Lewisburg, the Lewisburg Community Garden is located on the corner of North Water Street and Saint Anthony's Street. The garden features individual plots for groups, families or individuals interested in gardening as well as a larger area worked by student and community volunteers to provide produce for local hot meal programs and other food programs.
