Put on by the library's Garden Day Committee, the event features several booths designed to educate and inspire backyard gardeners in the North Country. Master gardeners, egg-carton garden starts, organic beekeeping demonstrations, seed exchanges, and more are planned.
Better Farm will be on-site with a mulch gardening demonstration to show gardeners how lasagna or mulch gardening can eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers, irrigation, weeding, and tilling. Visitors can look at before-and-after pictures, as well as interact with a 3-D display showing exactly how mulch gardening can be achieved in any garden.
Macsherry Library is located at 112 Walton St., Alexandria Bay, N.Y. Call the library at (315) 482-2241 for more information.
