Get Your Green Thumb On: Grand Rapids Public Library Offering Free Classes

Gardening has seen an increase in popularity since the Covid-19 Pandemic.

For one reason It gives people a way to get outside and relax.

While you're out there on your hands and knees you're able to forget about the daily stressors and focus on taking care of and growing different plants.
