May 11:  Edibles in Small Spaces- Gardening expert Thomas Chaplin of Dr. Earth will show you how easy it is to grow edibles in virtually any space – as long as it gets several hours of sunshine.  The possibilities for growing edibles without a yard are endless – using Smart Pots, Earth Boxes, Dr. Earth Bag-tainers, raised beds and vertical walls.  Join Thomas for tips on raising the healthiest, tastiest home grown food imaginable.  The first 60 attendees will receive a free autographed copy of “Healthy Garden Healthy You” by Dr. Earth founder Milo Shammas.

Thomas will be available from 1 to 3 pm at the Moana Lane store to analyze your lawn and garden problems.  Learn how to live every day healthier and safer by using Mother Nature’s Organic fertilizers and insect, fungus and weed controls.
