Fall Gardening Talk & Plant Swap
Sat. | July 22 | 1-2 p.m. Adult - NC Cooperative Extension Agent April Vigardt will lead an informative session on fall gardening. Yes, you can still plant food! Just because stores are closing out their gardening sections mid-summer doesn't mean there isn't food you can still grow. We will be talking about planting garlic, carrots, salad greens, onions, some root crops, cold hardy herbs, and more. If participating in the plant swap following the talk, please bring healthy, pest-free plants, starts, and/or seeds to share. Registration is required and will open three weeks before the event.
Random Fandom: Dungeons & Dragons
Teen Tech Take Apart
Thurs. | July 27 | 5-7 p.m.
Ages 12+ - City of Hickory IT staff will teach you about the inner workings of computers as you deconstruct laptops and other devices. Afterward, use the disassembled pieces to create funky tech artwork. Registration is required and will open three weeks before the event. A Hickory Public Library card is required to register.
