The N.C. Cooperative Extension is partnering with the Paddison Memorial Branch of the Forsyth County Public Library to offer a monthly gardening book club called Blooming Pages! Each month, we will choose one fiction or non-fiction book related to gardening to discuss. The discussion will include topics covered in the book and related gardening information.

Leslie Rose, Extension Horticulture Agent, will lead the discussion about books and gardening. This book club is scheduled for the fourth Thursday of the month at 11 AM. Continue reading for details of the next book club selection and meeting:
