Learn Something at the Library: Gardening – North Branch

Learn new details on gardening in raised beds and containers, with many photos of various examples, and receive excellent reference material to guide you along the way. Our focus will be vegetable gardening, but the information is also valuable for all types of gardening interests. Your take home project is a pot planted with host plants for one of our most beautiful native Illinois butterfly species, the Eastern Black Swallowtail. Your pot will grow from seeds to the plants needed for the caterpillar to grow into a butterfly, and you will be able to see the various stages of a butterfly from egg, through the larva caterpillar growth, and perhaps even as the new adults emerge from their chrysalis this summer. Please register by calling 309-497-2150. All ages welcome.
