Hickory – Join us at Patrick Beaver Memorial Library on Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. to learn how to maintain long-term healthy living.

This workshop, The 100 Year Old Gardener, will focus on how to foster longevity of the body and mind in and outside of the garden. This talk will delve into what science can teach us about maintaining our independence as we age, especially out of doors, so that we can keep doing the things that we love.
