It might not come to feel like spring, what with 7 to eight inches of new snow in the north valley. But that will not halt the Hailey Public Library from hosting a three-element collection named “High Altitude Gardens.”
The library will offer you the first part—an introduction to cool time gardening in the Wooden River Valley—at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 14. The converse will concentrate on plants that tolerate neat soils and chilly spring nights. And it will offer tips as to how gardeners can rescue them if temperatures drop dangerously.
The presenters will be Manon Gaudreau and Amy Mattias from 5B Resilience Gardens.
“The Wooden River Valley is residence to a amazing variety of excellent gardeners who have discovered how to function with, and not in opposition to, our quick expanding period. They know that timing is every thing,” reported the library’s systems and engagement supervisor Kristin Fletcher. “So, it is no shock our gardening talks are a hit every Spring.”
Gaudreau is a Grasp Gardener who assisted set up Valley Victory Gardens. She also heads up the Wooden River Seed Library and has taught lessons on gardening for many several years. Mattias is application director for the Sunshine Valley Institute for Resilience. She serves on the Blaine County Food stuff Council and is a board member of Idaho Middle for Sustainable Agriculture.
