Gardening Books Donated to Brookside Gardens
By Racquel Royer
On Saturday August 4, Washington Gardener Magazine donated a stack of gardening books to the library at Brookside Gardens. The value of the books came to $212, making the total amount donated to Brookside Gardens thus far from the magazine around $6,500! Book topics in this batch ranged from garden decorating to succulent growing to planting for pollinators. Washington Gardener Magazine looks forward to donating even more gardening references to the community at Brookside Gardens in the near future.
