Join a Book Group Conversation with Grow Now Author Emily Murphy and Learn Gardening Tips to Help You Rewild Your Land
Thursday, March 31, at 7 p.m. on Zoom
With spring in our sights, it’s time to lay plans to “grow a garden, change your life,” as Emily Murphy writes in her new book Grow Now: How We Can Save Our Health, Communities, and Planet—One Garden at a Time.
The independent nonprofit Sustainable Wellesley (SW), Wellesley Books, the Wellesley Natural Resources Commission, and Wellesley Free Library invite you to a book group discussion with the author on Thursday, March 31, at 7-8 p.m. via Zoom. Register here to learn about the merits of raised beds and containers, how to prepare ground for no-dig planting, tips on backyard composting, how to cultivate vines, herbs and edible flowers and much more.
With inspiring photographs and illustrations, Murphy’s book guides readers through seasonal cycles of cultivating a healthier more beautiful garden, from rich soil to seedlings to harvest and canning and finally winter prep. An organic gardener, designer and photographer, Murphy will share suggestions for nurturing a dynamic plot that is half food source and half wildlife haven; birds and useful insects are welcome. And learn how your yard connects to the ecosystem around us.
You can pick up a copy of Grow Now at Wellesley Books, which will generously donate a percentage of proceeds to SW. Stop by the Central Street store or borrow a copy at the Wellesley Free Library.
