Gardening for Life at Billings Public Library - "Inexpensive Family Gardening"

International Food Gardeners, Wayne and Connie Burleson from Absarokee will give a presentation on Inexpensive Family Gardening that makes growing your own healthy food simple, fun, easy and helps extend the Billings growing season.  They teach that creating super soils = healthy food = healthy people.   Bring the kids and watch the demonstration. Presentation will be held in the first floor Children's Department craft area on Saturday April 26th at 11am.  Kids will receive a free ‘Gardening for Life’ food growing kit.

Join Wayne and Connie following the program in the first floor Popular Materials room where they will be signing copies of their new book, Gardening for Life - No Money Required.

or Readers

Looking for something new to read?  Join one or two (or all 11!) of our Email Book Clubs. Each day we'll email you a 5-minute portion of a book. During the week you can read 2-3 chapters and decide if you want to check the book out of the library. Every Monday we start new books. You can choose among mysteries, business books, teen titles, even pre-publication! All you need to provide is your email address.
