Author's Friday Special: Sy Montgomery Friday, July 29 from 1:00 - 4:00

Sy Montgomery is an author and adventurer, whom the Boston Globe calls, “Part Indiana Jones and part Emily Dickinson.” To research her books, films, and articles, she has been chased by a silverback gorilla, embraced by a Giant Pacific Octopus, and undressed by an orangutan. But she is perhaps best known for her 14-year love affair with Christopher Hogwood, a runt piglet who grew into a 750-pound great Buddha master.
Autographed books, special drawings, door prizes, delicious appetizers, and a cash bar available. Tickets are now on sale at Dennis Public Library for $25, ($30 at door.) Tickets may also be purchased by mail: Friends of the Dennis Public Library, PO Box 25, S. Dennis, MA 02660.

Edible Perennial Gardening and Landscaping

Saturday, May 19 at 1:30 pm 

Expert naturalist John Root introduces our audience to species of trees, shrubs, canes, vines, and herbaceous perennials that can grow and bear fruit in our region. You’ll learn about organic gardening practices that promote healthy soils, plants, and biotic communities. These benefits of organic gardening help ensure abundant crops of fruits, nuts, and vegetables throughout the growing season - with minimal effort. Bring your questions and comments; John is ready for them! Afterwards, you’ll get handouts with a list of edible perennial plant species, resources for further study, and recommended sources of seeds and plants.
