Join us for an inspiring evening of designing beautiful and abundant, edible landscapes on Wednesday, April 5th, from 6-8:00pm with Ben Barken. Ben is the Owner and Founder, Lead Designer and Consultant at HomeHarvest - Edible Landscapes LLC.
Inspired by working on more than 30 organic farms in New England, California Oregon, Hawaii, New Zealand, and Australia, Ben founded HomeHarvest in 2008. Ben earned a degree in sustainable agriculture, is permaculture-design certified, and started HomeHarvest with just a bicycle and shovel. HomeHarvest, based out of Arlington and Lexington, MA, now has several company trucks, seven full time employees, and over 500 edible gardens installed throughout Boston and its suburbs.
Let Ben help you start growing a beautiful and healthy garden!
This green event is sponsored by the Atkinson Garden Club. It is free and open to the public.
SILLY SCAVENGER HUNT: It’s April Fool’s Day, so we are calling all kids to come try out our silly scavenger hunt anytime between the hours of 11am and 1pm on Saturday, April 1st.

Wear your clothes backwards or solve the clues for a silly surprise. Happy April Fool’s Day from us at Kimball Library!
LORRAINE MULLETT - ARTIST OF THE MONTH: “Hello, I am Lorraine Mullett, artist and this is my world. I am a visual storyteller that connects the dots to build my world. My world is full of variations of one character. She is the spark that lightens up your thinking and nudges you to thrive at being you. Comforting Friend is all about doors and windows of opportunities that open when you notice. About remembering to embrace joy, uncovering hope, notice peacefulness, and being a wisdom keeper. It is also about nurturing thoughts that are touchstones, anchors, talismans and reminders. It is about having a voice that sings and dances and communicated your story of oneness that encompasses all the variations of you.”
Stop by the meeting room and main circulation desk and see Lorraine’s display of whimsical art. Her words above come through her painting and wood burning. See for yourself. You can also ‘visit’ Lorraine online at http://www.lorrainemullettartist.com.
