Rutherford County Master Gardeners Series at Two RCLS Branches

Gardening lovers and novices can find a great resource for all your questions with a series of classes being offered at both the Linebaugh and Smyrna branches of the Rutherford County Library System. The class at Linebaugh is the first Saturday of each month at 9 a.m. in the 2nd floor Board Room. The Smyrna class is the second Saturday of the month at 10 a.m. in their conference room. 

The topic for the March class at either location is Vegetable Gardening Planning and PrepLearn where to place a garden -- in ground vs. raised beds vs. containers. Hear about sunlight, starting seeds, cool vs. warm season veggies. 

*Please Note: If you're participating in the Harry Nelson Winter Reading Program at Linebaugh, all book reviews need to be turned in by Saturday, March 7, at 5 p.m.
