Springfield Residents Can Grow Seedlings, Have Soil Tested, and Plan Gardens
Springfield City Library’s Mason Square Branch was lucky enough to win a “Health in the Square” grant from the National Library of Medicine a few months ago. However, the real winners are Springfield residents who can now attend a variety of free gardening workshops, many of which are funded by the grant.
Events include Garden Planning on March 9th from 5-6:30 PM, Soil Health and Soil Testing on March 25th from 11 AM – 12 PM, Community Garden Get Together on March 25th from 12:30-2:30 PM, and Bring Your Soil on March April 13th from 5-6:30 PM. All events listed above will be held at the Mason Square Library, located at 756 State Street in Springfield.
Many additional gardening-related workshops are planned at various city locations. For more information, please visit the Springfield Food Policy Council website or call them at 413-263-6500 ext. 6539.
