Spring Lecture Series 2011

Last night we completed this years lecture series with a talk by Barbara Wright, owner of Wright’s Nursery in Briggs. As always, Barbara brought a store house of knowledge to share with the audience and fielded numerous questions pertaining to each individuals needs. Despite the rather small crowd, we discussed many various areas from vegetables to lawns and trees. Barbara is very good at giving us localized information she has gleaned from numerous sources and years of hands on, practical experience with plants of all types. She brought along several books and flats of plants to sell at extremely reasonable prices. I highly recommend getting to know her as a source for ALL your planting needs. Her website wrightsnursey.net is a great place to start. Her primary business is the wholesale market but she seems always willing to deal with individuals who stop by.
After wards everyone stayed to visit with her and their friends and were treated to a great variety of refreshments from pot stickers to homemade cheesecake. It was a great way to end this years series and next years lectures should be on everyone’s calendar. The board is considering a few minor tweaks for next year and we will get that information out as soon as they do. Until then ,come enjoy all the other aspects of our wonderful small town library and GET INVOLVED !
