Front Porch Conversations group meets next week

On June 9, Sharon Nance, a member of the Master Gardeners of the Ozarks, will present a program on Lasagna Gardening. After seeing a presentation on the subject a few years ago, Sharon built her own lasagna garden and loves sharing her knowledge and experience with others. Lasagna gardens are built in layers, as the name implies, and are less work than the traditional garden because the gardener does not dig or till the ground before planting. Front Porch Conversations for Garden People begins at 7 p.m. on the second Thursday of the month in the lower level of the Cassville Branch Library, with a presentation on a different garden topic each month. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Cassville Library and the Barry County Master Gardeners.
