The library brought in local experts with information on recycling, gardening, composting, homesteading, beekeeping, and more, including the opportunity to get up close and personal with farm animals while learning about living off the land. The Chamelin family, representing the Keep and Till community of faith and farming, brought and shared some of their animals with visitors to the Green Expo.
