Petaluma Library Garden
Next to the main entrance to the library, the Petaluma Library Garden welcomes the community to its habitat garden that invites in birds, butterflies and other beneficial insects and critters. Replacing a weedy patch of lawn, it was designed to provide interest in all four seasons using drought tolerant plants to serve as inspiration for the home gardener. It’s a popular spot for reading or relaxing, enjoying lunch or a snack or just letting off a little steam jumping from rock to rock in the children’s circle.
We work in the garden as a group once a month and individually at other times and welcome community comments and questions during these times.
The Children’s summer program, in collaboration with the library’s childrens summer reading program, provides gardening related activities for young children and is meant to inspire future gardeners.
We host an information table at the library entrance on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month from March through November offering information about our garden and MG activities and providing answers to gardening questions.
Working with library staff, we host a biennial succulent swap in the library’s community
