A lot of organizations talk about “going green” these days, but the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh is taking the concept to a whole new level. Did you know that the Main Library (and many more library locations throughout the city) planted vegetable and herb gardens this spring?
This week at CLP Main- Teen, we’ll be kicking off our own *Teen* Gardening Thyme program series! Throughout the summer, we’ll be hosting cool garden and gardening related programs. Each program will begin with a tour of the fabulous garden at CLP Main! Program participation is limited to teens and registration is required.
Seed bombs are little balls made of compost, clay, and seeds. You can plant them in your garden or use them to green-up vacant lots.
We’ll be picking some herbs from the CLP Main vegetable garden and use them to create their own salad dressing!
We’ll use some vegetables and herbs from the CLP Main vegetable garden to make pickles and salsa!
