Master Gardener’s Composting Project
As of July 1st, 2020, Vermont State Law bans food scraps from our trash. As part of this initiative, the UVM Master Gardeners, working with Deborah Rawson Memorial Library, would like to introduce you to their composting project.
The garden at DRML has a compost bin which is made with wooden pallets, 2 boards of lumber, nails, outdoor-grade zip ties, and plastic posts. The plans for this simple project are available at the library.
Would you like to see our compost bin and receive more information about composting? Feel free to visit the garden behind the DRML, or stop by on Wednesday mornings from 9 to 11 AM while the Master Gardeners are working; they would be happy to answer your questions.
Local artists exhibit their work in the library on a monthly rotating basis. If you are interested in exhibiting your work, call the library at 899-4962. A lockable display case is available, as well as wall space for hanging photos, paintings, etc.
Music series – A music concert is held once a month on the first Sunday of the months of October, November, December, February, March, and April. Program time is 2 pm. See our calendar for specific details. We are looking for performers please fill out this form and send to the library.
