BEGINNER GARDENING TIPS WITH MAGGIE SCHIER
Are you interested in starting a vegetable garden but don't know where to begin?
On Wednesday, March 26 at 6:30pm, Maggie Schier, Coordinator of the Newmarket Community Garden for the past 4 years, will speak about permaculture techniques for growing healthy organic gardens. The program is co-sponsored by the Library and the Newmarket Gardeners.
The speaker will be Maggie Schier, who has been Coordinator of the Newmarket Community Garden for the past 4 years, and has traveled to California, Argentina, New Zealand and Cuba to study different kinds of community gardening. When not traveling or working at the Community Garden, Maggie works as an independent residential gardener.
This is an educational talk for anyone interested in starting a vegetable garden. Says Ms. Schier: "I think it might be enticing to some people to know that I've learned through practical experience since it will show them that anyone can do this stuff. You don't have to go to school for years or have professional experience to be a successful gardener."
