at the Alamo Theatre featuring Lisa Colburn

Doors open at 9:30am

Lisa Colburn is the author of The Maine Garden Journal – Insider secrets from Maine people who love to put their hands in the dirt.

Most gardening books focus on the expertise of one person, but each gardener faces a different set of challenges and delights. This book is a compilation of the fascinating knowledge gathered from over one hundred folks throughout Maine who do their own ornamental gardening and really put their hands in the dirt. Not only is buying local and eating local increasingly recognized as important, but learning local applies when it comes to gardening. This book is social networking at its best.

Lisa will show slides and discuss how the book came to be.

Waterfront container gardening demonstration, a silent auction and more. $5.00 donation.
