As those garden veggies start to come in, a Clinton entity is getting a garden-share program started again.
Business manager of the Warner Library in Clinton, Samantha Rusk, indicates the 'Garden Table' program started before COVID and in 2020 it was paused but is back again in 2022 and gives patrons a chance to take homegrown vegetables home and all the library asks is if you're able, you leave something behind.
Rusk indicates this is a free program for anyone and there are no income limits. Additionally, you don't need to check-in with the front desk, they just it to be a helpful resource for the community.
In addition to the 'Garden Table', the library continues to offer its seed library. Some vegetables are a little late to be putting in the ground now but Rusk says if there's anything you might be interested in trying, check-in and see what they have available.
Rusk reminds the Master Gardeners from the University of Illinois Extension will be back at the library next Thursday, July 14. Get more information by visiting vwarner.org or find them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
