By |2022-08-07T12:28:34-04:00August 10, 2022|

Transform your garden into a pollinator paradise with expertise from the Lake County Master Gardeners! Our gardener explains some of the ways that your gardens and even lawns can support local pollinators, including insects, birds, and even some mammals. Her recommendations include planting more flowers, using more native plants in your garden, avoiding pesticides, and shrinking the size of your lawns.

Two more tips for any gardeners out there:

1. Did you know that you can get free veggie, flower, and herb seeds from our Seed Library? Check out our collection  the next time you visit our Main Branch. Borrow up to 15 packets of seeds per season.

2. By the way, any green thumbs should check out the special collection from Holden Forests & Gardens’ Corning Library available at our Main Branch. In addition to a gorgeous arboretum in Kirtland, Holden also has a spectacular collection of gardening, horticulture, environmental and botany books at Corning Library within its arboretum.

Dozens of Corning Library’s books are now available to borrow at our Main Branch. Thanks to a partnership between libraries, you can use your cards to check out books from this special collection. Our typical lending rules apply.
