February Events at the Conifer Public Library was created by ConiferPublicLibrary
There may be snow on the ground but it is time to start thinking spring! Looking to grow some fruits and vegetables this year? Our presenter Margaret Rode will give the tips and tricks for high altitude gardening so that you too can harvest your own produce (yes, even tomatoes!). Stop by the Conifer Public Library on February 23 to find out how!
