Creek County Literacy Program Announces Free Workshop: Container Gardening

Free workshop provides information and materials for container gardening

 

(SAPULPA, OK – March 18, 2015) Are you interested in learning more about container gardening? Would you like tips and tricks to quickly and easily start your own windowsill garden?

Join Creek County Literacy Program and the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service as we discover how to grow our own herbs and small vegetables during this fascinating workshop. Sandy Dimmitt-Carroll and other Master Gardeners will do a step-by-step lesson for container gardening. This dedicated group have volunteered hundreds of hours impacting Creek County.

The workshop will cover a variety of information on economical container gardening. “Container gardening is ideal for individuals who live in apartments, or may not want to have a large garden but enjoy the taste of fresh herbs in their cooking,” shares Dimmitt-Carroll. During the workshop, participants will be able to create a container garden that they can take home and cultivate. The free workshop will be held at the Library Annex, 15 North Poplar Street in Sapulpa on Tuesday, April 28 at 5:30pm.

This free event is a health literacy outreach project of Creek County Literacy Program, the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, with funding provided by the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. For more information or to register, call 918-224-9647.
