What’s new at NOPL?
The LibraryFarm is an organic community garden on one-half acre of land owned by the Northern Onondaga Public Library in Cicero, NY. Anyone can “check out” a plot! The purpose of the Library Farm is to provide a place for the community to grow, share and learn about food literacy, and organic, sustainable gardening.
At the Library Farm, half of the area is dedicated to the Community Garden; the other half is dedicated to the Library Farm Plotters – our individual gardeners. All gardeners agree to follow organic growing practices.
Come visit us! We are located at the NOPL @ Cicero Library.
The LibraryFarm is raising funds to upgrade and improve its grounds and communications in 2015. Adrienne, NOPL at Cicero’s Coordinator for the LibraryFarm is leading the campaign and needs your help. Read more and give donations at: thelibraryfarm.mydagsite.com starting Monday, January 19th!
