Are you interested in gardening? Here’s a way to make your winter blues go away! Start planning your spring garden now with the 2022 Library Garden Series presented by the Dare Extension Master Gardeners in conjunction with the Dare County Libraries.

This year all programs will be offered “virtually” rather than in person. All programs will be on Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m. Presentations will last approximately one hour, and people can choose to attend one or all of the programs that are of interest to them. For 2022, we hope you will join us for many brand new never-before offered programs as well as some of our most popular topics from years past.
