Library to Present Program Series in Cooperation with Springfield Ohio Urban Plantfolk (S. O. U. P.)

The Clark County Public Library will kick off a series of programs aimed at getting local residents out in the garden and growing their own food with a new project being presented in cooperation with the Springfield Ohio Urban Plantfolk (S. O. U. P.) .  

Starting with a discussion of the documentary, Food, Inc.* on Tuesday, March 16th and following up with subsequent sessions on Planting Seeds (March 24th), Planning Your Garden (April 22nd) and Planting Your Garden (May 20th), the aim of the series is to help those puzzled by plants, vexed by veggies and stumped by seeds get their gardens growing with help from the Springfield Ohio Urban Plantfolk.

S. O. U. P. is a local, community based organization, whose goal is to get people educated about the food we eat and help make our community more food secure by teaching people how to grow their own food.

Those interested in registering for programs in the series can contact Community Engagement Librarian, Sarah Webb at 

*Food, Inc.: How Industrial Food is Making Us Sicker, Fatter, and Poorer - And What You Can Do About It is available for free on DVD at the library, or on Hoopla Digital at  You are encouraged, but not required to watch the film.
