Tomorrow: Backyard Garden Workshop at 9:00 a.m. Details below.

At the end of this blog post is recent news in the Herald for everyone interested in backyard gardens.

But guess what? There is lots and lots of new LOCAL news in this week’s Lake Worth Herald including news about The MID and a structure on N. Dixie Hwy., “[W]hich once housed Wayne Akers Ford is being demolished to make way for The MID, a 5.6 acre two hundred plus unit mixed use development.” Isn’t that a kick!

And there is news about “Family Saturdays” returning to the Cultural Council. The City of Lake Worth is holding a design competition and Pelican Pete has some musings on Tropical Storm Gordon too. And on p. 2 there is news about singing and drinking beer at the annual “Beer & Hymns” event (TONIGHT!), and on September 15th the “Village of Palm Springs Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month”, on p. 3 is Palm Beach County School News, then later in the paper is information from Everglades Ernie and Jorge Goyanes’ Car Clinic, and “The Divas Are Returning To The Lake Worth Playhouse!”

And there’s more.

The Town of Lantana is having a Public meeting for Republic Services’ new automated garbage service, a half-page ad about the City of Lake Worth’s change in recycling method, there are lots of ads from LOCAL businesses and Public Notices as well.

But unfortunately, this week there was no lovely and charming Letter to the Editor. But maybe next week.
