Gardeners gathered at the Valier Public Library to learn from the Montana State University Extension Pondera County Office about container gardening, ph levels and composting. 

Cathy Brandvold strives to make the Valier Public Library a place that enhances literacy on many levels. In addition to the regular services expected, such as book loans, research materials, and multimedia resources, the library offers after school programs and a Summer Reading Program for the kids and enrichment activities for grownups. The library is truly a hub of learning.

Recently, interested adults participated in a gardening workshop and an Artisan Bread demonstration both offered by the Pondera County Extension Office.

Nearly twenty adults attended the hands-on gardening class. “We had a very informative meeting with the Montana State University Extension Pondera County Office about container gardening, ph levels and composting,” reported Brandvold.

Two learning activities are planned for the month of June. Maureen Hoggan will be returning for an encore Cake Decorating class on June 18 from Noon - 5:00 p.m. and a Sourdough class will be taught by Carol Green on June 30 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Attendees can sample some sourdough recipes, learn tips on keeping their sourdough starter alive, learn how to make a starter if they have indeed killed one, and receive a new starter to take home.
