Local gardeners interested in extending their gardening season into the fall are invited to attend the Lewisburg Community Garden's Fall Extension Gardening workshop on Thursday, July 31, at 7 p.m. at the Public Library of Union County located at 255 Reitz Blvd.
Bucknell Biology Professor Mark Spiro will cover a variety of topics including cold hardy crops, using row cover and cold frames, and best practices for fall gardening. 
This workshop, which is free and open to the public, is part of a continuing monthly workshop series offered by the Lewisburg Community Garden and the Public Library of Union County. A different gardening workshop will be offered each month through September of 2014. Registration is not required.
A joint project between Bucknell University and the Borough of Lewisburg, the Lewisburg Community Garden is located on the corner of North Water Street and Saint Anthony's Street. The garden features individual plots for groups, families or individuals interested in gardening as well as a larger area worked by student and community volunteers to provide produce for local hot meal programs and other food programs.
For more information about this workshop or the Lewisburg Community Garden, contact Stacey Sommerfield at 570-577-3928 or sns004@bucknell.edu.
