It may take some patience to convert from methods that rely on chemicals, but it can be done. To learn more about organic growing, attend a meeting of the Springdale Garden Club. He will discuss how to have a green, healthy lawn and garden by growing organically. Peggy Lane Down to J earth The meeting, scheduled for p. Wednesday, is free and open to the public.
