The Master Gardeners of Snoqualmie Valley are starting their garden talks in the North Bend and Sammamish Libraries early for 2018. There are six events planned, starting with a discussion on home composting, healthy soil and healthy plants, led by Lawrence McCrone and Darien Payne, 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 13 at North Bend Library, and at 1:30 p.m. at Sammamish Library.
McCrone, an Issaquah Master Gardener, will talk about ways to make good compost, compost bins and worm bins. Payne is a Fall City Master Gardener and she will talk about: What is soil? How do plants get what they need and what can we do to build and maintain healthy soil.
