Adult Connections: Container Gardening

with Tara Kolla of Silver Lake Farms Thursday, March 18, 10:00 a.m. It doesn’t matter how small the space, everyone can grow something, whether it’s flowers or food. Grower and garden guru TARA KOLLA of Silver Lake Farms, will get us started. We’ll learn how to create a happy, healthy, natural environment for growing food and flowers from seed. She’ll tell us how to prepare the soil, how to properly water and feed plants, and share tips for saving water and money. Tara is a certified urban farmer who started growing and selling organic cut flowers out of her back yard in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, in 2003. She quickly expanded her business, adding organic vegetables, and workshops on urban farming. She recently started offering cooking classes to help her customers and students find new ways to prepare and serve all the fresh produce they are growing under her tutelage. Tara and Silver Lake Farms were featured in Los Angeles Magazine’s October 2009, “Home Grown” issue, and more recently in the February 2010 issue of Sunset magazine. Join us in the Barth Community Room and cultivate that green thumb. Adult Connections is a new program being offered at the Crowell Public Library on the third Thursday of the month. Enjoy coffee, donuts and a new topic of interest to an adult audience each month. Upcoming “explorations” may include travel, exercise, digital cameras, de-cluttering, or any other topic of general interest. ### 1890 Huntington Drive, San Marino, CA 91108-2595 ● Phone: (626) 300-0777 Book the beautiful Barth Community Room for your next workshop or corporate event!
