The Chester County Library will hold a two-part series, “Let’s Get Dirty: Learn to Love Gardening Organically,” on Monday, Feb. 20 and 27, at 6:30 p.m. Third-generation gardener Deborah Kates will share 35 years of organic practice to get you ready for spring growing. As part one of this series, she will discuss ordering seeds, including heirloom vs. hybrid seeds and plants, siting a garden, gardening zones, preparing the soil to plant in spring, sunlight vs. shade needs, and when and how early to start various vegetable seeds outdoors.

Part two of the series includes more information about organic gardening. Learn about starting seeds indoors under lights, transplanting them outside (how and when?), mulching plants and walkways, raised beds and using row covers for protecting plants from weather and insects. Registration is required. To register, visit www.ccls.org and click on “Find an Event,” or call 610-280-2642.
