Tomball Children's Garden Club Spring Planting

The Kids Garden Club at the Tomball Library has resumed meetings for the Spring season. Two rows of okra were planted for a summer crop and the kids made salad and a dressing with the salad greens that were grown over the winter break. Garden Club meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month between last and first freezes of the year. This Spring we will work on the Ecology and Environmental Horticulture Certificate of their Golden Ray Series of the Junior Master Gardener Program. All children 5-12 are welcome to participate but must register no earlier than the Monday of the previous week. Registration is limited to 10 children per meeting. Please call 832-559-4235 for more information or to register.

Street Art

Timed to coincide with the Lascaux exhibit at Houston's Museum of Natural Science, we've created a book display called Street Art. Featured are books from prehistoric times--the Lascaux cave paintings, Texas petroglyphs, Egyptian, Aegean, and African tomb, wall, and cave art--right up to modern street murals, graffiti, and even--yes--yarn bombing. 

But even more fun is the wall itself. We've covered the wall surrounding the display in paper and for the last week our customers have been contributing their own 'street' art. Come and add your own!
