A very happy St. Patrick’s Day to you. We’re going green in a slightly different fashion this morning, as our guest for Thursday Morning Conversations is Dick Slavik, one half of the “Your Gardeners” team. Dick is coming to talk about when and how to best prune your trees. Join us in front of the fireplace for coffee, donuts, and conversation.
Green Lake County now has a bird monitoring kit available for groups to check out from the Caestecker Public Library. Developed by the Wisconsin Society for Ornithology and the Wisconsin Bird Conservation Initiative the kit contains 15 pairs of binoculars, a spotting scope and tripod, five copies of Birds of North America field guide by Kenn Kaufman, an educator’s guide with suggested activities, and other bird identification literature. The bird monitoring kit is suitable for use by scouts, 4-H, school, and adult groups, and will check out for up to one week.
Got seeds? The library does, and we’d like to get them to you. From organic arugula to Moon and Stars watermelon, the Green Lake Seed Library has heirloom and open pollinated vegetable, fruit, flower, and herb seeds for you to check out, grow, enjoy, and save some seed from for the next growing season. This is the Seed Library’s fourth year of helping Green Lake area residents get to know and grow their own food. Stop in and make your selections from our list today.
