Besides finally seeing the grass growing outside, “Going Green” can mean many different things: being aware of environmental wellness, pursuing energy efficiency, changing the way we do business, practicing sustainable living, or making environmentally friendly decisions like recycling and upcycling.
Going Green with Gardening
Continue the “Grow a Row” tradition and become a part of this community project together with the Library and the Goffstown Network Food Pantry. It’s easy – simply plant extra rows in your vegetable garden for a bountiful harvest that can be donated to a family in need later this summer. The Library supports the Goffstown Network Food Pantry by being a drop-off location for all of you local growers; we then deliver your produce to the Food Pantry each week.
Stop by the Library to pick up specially marked row stakes for your garden, and check out our selection of gardening books and e-sources to help you on your way to a green thumb.
Going Green at Home
Our current 2nd floor display features books and DVDs for you to learn more about the many ways to introduce more “green” practices into your daily life. While you’re there, pick up a how-to and label to make your own citrus spray cleaner. (See it on instagram.com/goffstownlibry.)
