You have likely heard about the health benefits of eating fresh produce, and there’s nothing fresher than vegetables you pull from your own garden. In addition, gardeners get great exercise and fresh air while tending their plants. You don’t need a lot of space to get growing—just a pot is plenty.
If you’d like to learn more about container gardening for both vegetables and flowers, Mercy St. Francis Hospital and the Mountain View Senior Center are teaming up to sponsor a seminar. Susanne Howard, a research specialist with Missouri State University, will show you how easy it can be.
The event is set for Wednesday, May 22 at 1 p.m. at the Senior Center.
