Where to go? Where to go? I’m probably not the only Northfield gardener wondering where to go on Thursday night this week when two excellent garden programs are running opposite each other on opposite ends of downtown. The choices:
The Northfield Public Library is hosting John Daniels, a Northfield resident who works for Bachman’s in Lakeville, at 7 p.m. Thursday to talk about the best plant choices for northern gardens. He’ll recommend perennials, shrubs, roses and trees that are most likely to thrive in our climate and soil. The event is free and open to the public.
Meanwhile, at Just Food Co-op, urban naturalist Neil Cunningham will talk about creating sanctuaries for bees in home yards and gardens. Home gardeners can play a significant role in helping bees and other pollinators by providing pollen sources, water and cover. The two-hour talk begins at 6:30 p.m., and costs $7 for nonmembers of the co-op and $5 for members. Register by calling 507-650-0106.
Where will you be Thursday night?
