Hugelkultur in action


Join us Saturday, November 1 at 1:00 PM for a workshop on Soil Remineralization and Hugelkultur.  The discussion on soil remineralization will examine how minerals in your soil are depleted and teach you techniques to get them back and keep them there.


In the Hugelkultur workshop, attendees will help build a kind of raised bed on the library grounds and learn how to apply this multi-year composting-in-place technique in their own garden.  Seeds and bulbs suitable for fall planting are welcome.




Join us Saturday, October 18th at 1:00 PM for a discussion with local writer Barbara Traynor, author of the book  Second Career Volunteer: A Passionate, Pennywise Approach to a Unique Lifestyle.


In July 2005, after working as an Administrative Assistant for over 45 years, Barbara retired.  In August 2005, she drove 8,000 miles to Alaska to volunteer at a small college that was offering FREE room and board in exchange for workplace skills for one year.  Since then, Barbara has become a long-term, long distance volunteer across the country…all on a Social Security income!


Come hear Barbara discuss her book and her adventures at the library on October 18th at 1:00 PM!  No registration required.


Conflicting nutrition information in the modern media has turned the simple act of eating into a maze of confusing dietary advice and passing fads.  EAT YOUR WAY TO HEALTH breaks through the haze with practical, straightforward information about how food affects health and what simple changes can be made to eat better, live better and enjoy a vibrant lifestyle.


Presented by local food blogger and wellness consultant Theresa “Sam” Houghton, EAT YOUR WAY TO HEALTH is a series of four classes based on the Bauman College Wellness Program.  Each session focuses on one particular area for a complete picture of what it means to be healthy.
