ELLSWORTH — The Ellsworth Garden Club and the Sustainable Arts Garden Club at Ellsworth High School will be hosting Marjorie Peronto and Reeser Manley for an illustrated talk and book signing in the Ellsworth High School cafeteria at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Manley and Peronto have recently published “The New England Gardener’s Year,” which is a full-color, month-by-month guide for gardeners in this region.
Both authors will be available to sign their book, which will be on sale at this event.
As a Cooperative Extension educator for the University of Maine in Hancock and Washington counties, Peronto will be talking about end-of-season composting and both she and Manley will introduce their new book.
Manley is most widely known as the writer of a weekly garden column and blog, “Gardening in Tune with Nature,” for the Bangor Daily News.
