Fair Haven is a Diverse Community with a Rich History and a Beautiful Waterfront

Hundreds Of Seedlings 'Adopted' By Local Green Thumbs at Fair Haven Library Giveaway.

Plants and gardening might not be a first association when one hears "library", but that's what is among several community initiatives of the neighborhood Public Library on Grand Avenue.

A couple dozen of neighbors responded to a call from Fair Haven Library gardening afficionados giving away seedlings of flowers and vegetables on Saturday afternoon. Cherry tomatoes, mint, basil, cucumbers and marigolds where the most popular among local gardeners.

Heather Hambleton (photo) is a volunteer at the Library who introduced me to some exotic (to me) plants and convinced me to take home a few seedlings. All I know about gardening is that you stick dirt part in more dirt while keeping the green part up. I am excited to see results... A flyer distributed by Library says: " It's easy. You just need: sun, earth & water; nurturing & patience"

Seedling Giveaway is an every year initiative - so if you miss the opportunity you may plan a garden for next season. In the meantime you can come to Library on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3:30 p.m. until the end of June to ask Heather some gardening questions. She "forces" at those days some of the students to stop staring at computer screens at the Library's technology access center and enjoy some real nature colors in the little garden behind the Library building. Her secret - she lures them into the garden with taste of delicious Alpine strawberries... hurry up, not much left!
