INDEPENDENCE -- Master Gardener John Young will offer a hands-on container gardening program Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Independence Public Library.

Attendees will learn the basics of planting containers that thrive. This program is for adults and is limited to 20 active participants. Additional attendees are welcome to come and watch.

All basic materials and plants will be provided, but those with a container that they would like to plant (10- to 15-gallon size) are welcome to bring them. Participants are also encouraged to bring gloves and a trowel.

Materials for this program have been donated by Daryll's Nursery and the Friends of the Independence Public Library. There is no charge for the program, but donations to the Friends of the Independence Public Library will be accepted to help defray materials costs.

Preregistration is required for those that want to participate in the hands-on activity.
