IN LIBRARY Five Keys to Organic Gardening Success

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Hammond Room
Grow your own food this year! It's a positive endeavor that yields more than an edible crop. Whether you're new to gardening or already at home with sun and soil, this is the perfect time to plan your spring garden. Jeanne Nolan of The Organic Gardener will help you be prepared for planting season. Tying in practical advice for gardeners of all abilities, she'll outline her basic keys to planning, planting and maintaining a productive organic edible garden. 

More about the presenter: Jeanne Nolan has been growing food organically for over 35 years. She is a well-known educator and consultant and the founder of The Organic Gardener Ltd. A Chicago native, Jeanne spent 17 years learning to farm in Texas, North Carolina, and California. In 2005, Jeanne began working with Chicago’s Green City Market. On their behalf, she designed, installed, and today maintains The Edible Gardens, a 5,000 square-foot educational children’s garden in Lincoln Park Zoo’s Farm-in-the-Zoo. That same year, Jeanne launched The Organic Gardener, rooted in her belief that everyone, everywhere, can benefit from growing their own food. Jeanne also regularly teaches about growing food on WTTW’s Chicago Tonight, Chicago Tribune, Food & Wine, Woman’s Day, and other national publications. In 2013, Random House published her book, From the Ground Up, called “one of the most intelligent, surprising, and impressive garden memoirs” by The New York Times. Jeanne lives with her husband on a little farm in Northbrook, Illinois.
