Colleen Plimpton Presents: Not Tonight, Deer

Monday, August 6th at 7:00 pm
Meeting Room 3 on the Lower Level of the Main Library

Colleen Plimpton’s multi-honored garden memoir, Mentors in the Garden of Life was a Finalist for the 2011 Connecticut Book of the Year in the Memoir category. Describing the presentation, Ms. Plimpton states, “Gardening in deer country demands a multifaceted approach. Included is the recipe for my never-fail deer repellent, along with other strategies for outwitting the dratted deer, including lists of deer-resistant material. We also discuss what to do about voracious voles, bodacious bunnies, greedy groundhogs, and other nefarious nabobs of the garden.”
