The project’s primary focus is to promote gardening and to provide gardening education for the Abita Springs residents and surrounding community. Spring and Fall presentations are presented by St. Tammany Master Gardeners in conjunction with the St. Tammany Parish library staff, and are open to all. Some project members also lend a hand with the library’s butterfly and herb garden.
