Since washing our hands is more important than ever, now is the perfect time to learn how to make soap. Join us Tuesday, June 16 at 1:30 pm for Soap Making 101.

Brooke Isham of Lomah Farmstead in Sangerville will teach us how to make beautiful, cold processed natural soap from ingredients that can be found locally, using simple equipment. She currently sells her soap online and at various Farmer’s Markets. She specializes in soaps that are free of synthetic fragrances & colorants.

Feel free to ask questions & share your own soap making tips!

Join us on Tuesday, March 24 at 5:30 pm for an exhibit of thoughts and photos from everyday people about how climate change affects us here in Maine, hosted by researchers from the Psychology in Context Lab at UMaine Augusta.

In October, eight members of the Dover-Foxcroft community came together to talk about climate change and other social changes. They talked about the environment, housing, poverty, and people moving to Maine – and so much more. They took photos and told stories about how these changes are affecting us here in Maine.

Come learn what they had to say! What do you have to add to the conversation?

On Thursday, March 5 at 4 pm the Piscataquis Regional Food Center will host a workshop on container gardening at the library. Come to learn the basics and get your questions answered!

PRFC will also be sharing information about their new Garden in a Box pilot project, which aims to educate people about growing their own food and provide all people the opportunity to do so.

“There is still time to change the direction we’re headed and avoid the cliff ahead, but we need to understand what is happening, and why, in order to see clearly how the choices we make now will profoundly affect the lives of all living things for thousands of years.”–www.climateeducationproject.org
