Library Workshops, conducted by Master Gardeners in partnership with the Anne Arundel County Public Libraries, are designed to educate the public by presenting useful information from basic gardening facts to in-depth gardening practices, with an awareness of the gardener's responsibility to the entire ecosystem. Knowledgeable Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer participants' gardening questions. All events are free and open to everyone who has an interest in gardening, regardless of skill level or garden size.
