Please join us for our annual Winter Garden Workshop series: Growing Literacy. Every winter, the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust offers this series of workshops to engage with the community, support the Tom Settlemire Community Garden, and offer skill-building exercises for gardeners of all abilities. These workshops are a wonderful opportunity to learn from master gardeners and experts on a variety of gardening subjects. This year we are proud to host six talks through collaboration with Brunswick-Topsham Land TrustGrowing to Give and Curtis Memorial Library. Two of these talks will be on local farms, three on Zoom, and one in-person at Curtis Memorial Library. Bring your curiosity, questions, and join us!

Curtis Memorial Library is a public library of Brunswick and Harpswell, Maine. Curtis Memorial Library strives to enrich the quality of life in this region by building community, advocating for reading, championing social justice and digital equity, and promoting sustainability.

Growing to Give grows organic produce to support those in the community struggling with food insecurity while modeling, educating, and advocating for climate-friendly farming practices. Working with a robust network of volunteers and community partners, Growing to Give has grown and donated over 80,000 lbs of produce since its inception in 2017.

Thank you to Camden National Bank for sponsoring this series!
