Garden Resource Books

The garden resource books are now housed under the potting bench! These books were generously donated by a friend of the garden and we hope will be a valuable resource for gardeners. Please feel free to browse while at the garden or borrow. IMPORTANT: We kindly request that you LATCH the plastic tote boxes after using the books to protect them from moisture and return the books after use. Thank you!📚
