The Round Rock Public Library presents "Why Organic is Better: For You, Your Wallet, and Our Planet" at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 17.

The mantra of organic gardening is to feed the soil, not the plant. Have you ever wanted to know what that really means? What's the big difference between organic and "conventional" gardening anyway?

Come find out why the popular "blue water" is inferior to the bacteria, fungi, amoebas, and billions of other critters present in an organic garden. Discover how these multitudes of microorganisms, working hard to store water, stock nutrients, search out vital elements, and destroy invading hordes, actually preserve an important precious resource: your money. Learn why an Organic Garden is better and how to grow one.

Hosted by Jeff Ferris co-founder of the Neighborhood Harvest Project.
