Have you noticed that the lot across Green Street from the library has gotten greener? That’s due to two new developments: The partnership between Cunningham Township and The Urbana Free Library to create a community garden, and the reopening of the Urbana Free Library Bee and Butterfly garden.
Recently the library leased the lot at 203 w. Green to the Cunningham Township Supervisors Office so that they could develop a community food garden. You can see the Township garden proposal here.
for more information about the CTSO visit their page on the City of Urbana website.
Also this week the Urbana Free Library’s Teen Open Lab weeded, mulched, and planted annuals in the Bee and Butterfly Garden, which exists next to the community garden on the same plot. This spring marks the third year for the Bee and Butterfly Garden! For more information about the TOL Bee and Butterfly Garden, check out the garden page on the library website.

The library also has many great titles related to gardens and gardening.
