Bitterroot Gardening Month by Month

 

In collaboration with O'Hara Commons we are offering a monthly gardening meetup March through June (Spring Edition) and September through November (Fall Edition)at noon the second Wednesday of each month at O'Hara Commons (111 S. 4th St).  For the novice or the expert who just loves to share their passion for gardening, this monthly lunchtime gathering provides hands on educational activities focused on seasonally appropriate topics.  Participants receive 10% off featured gardening books when purchased at Chapter One or ordered at monthly meetings. Meetups include a gardening clinic provided by local experts to help identify pests, pathogens and other garden ailments that might occur throughout the year.  Suggested donation $5 to cover materials.  To stay posted on all the details email chapter1ders@gmail.com.
