GARDENING AND READING FUN
EMMET O'NEAL LIBRARY IN CRESTLINE VILLAGE
The Summer Reading Program at Emmet O'Neal Library was something I participated in every summer as a child. I read lots of books! That was a few (lol) years ago and I wish I had as much time for reading as I did back then.
This year, young readers from pre-schoolers to teenagers and their families, had fun not only reading, but cultivating a garden right across the street from the library, on a plot of land owned by Oak Street Garden Shop. The kids grew tomatoes, beans, squash and zucchini, with the garden shop providing the seeds, tools and plenty of help to make their garden a success. And what a success! The garden flourished and they were able to help those in need by donating excess food to Magic City Harvest!
So now that the kids are back in school, what has become of their garden? It is still being cared for, and with fall coming up, it might be a great spot for a pumpkin patch!
Thanks to Emmet O'Neal Library and Oak Street Garden Shop for partnering together on this project which the entire community has been able to enjoy.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION!
