Fall Gardening and Bugs Galore with a Master Gardener

The Parklands-Turner Neighborhood Library hosted two children's program with the Master Gardener Program of District of Columbia. These two programs focused on fall gardening and bugs. On Saturday, October 9, Master Gardener Ms. Siddle led a lively discussion on the value of vegetable gardening and the best vegetables to grow in our area, how to take care of the garden, what to watch out for, and how you can tell when the vegetables are ready to be picked. She assisted children as they planted their seeds to make a window box to take home. 

On Wednesday, October 13, Master Gardener Ms. Siddle led another lively discussion on the types of bugs we see in the fall. She discussed why these bugs are important to our gardens, parks, green spaces, and the ecosystem.  The kids made a bug jar to take home and released several ladybugs into the trees.
