Leach Library to host “Small Space for Growing Fruit”
On Thursday, March 15 at 7:00 p.m., the Leach Library will host Mr. David Quigley for an evening presentation of “Small Space for Growing Fruit”.
Mr. Quigley of King Street Vineyards has been growing fruit for more than forty years. He became interested during his business travels to Europe where he observed how green space was utilized. He has applied what he has learned to his one-acre property in Milford, growing fruit for his own use and for sale. He also makes jams, jellies, and his own bottled wine.
During his presentation, he will share how, regardless of property size, any available growing space can be utilized to create a beautiful and sustainable food source. He will also discuss how to avoid the many pitfalls that homeowners face in growing fruit.
The event is free and open to the public with seating limited to the first 90 individuals. It will be held in the library’s lower-level meeting room. Light refreshments will be served.
