Get an early start on your garden this year by learning how to build your own cold frame at the Redmond
Public Libraries during the month of March. Local retired contractor, Fred Olson, will be demonstrating the techniques required to construct a simple cold frame. Following the demonstration, the cold frame will be raffled off to a program participant. The programs are free and open to the public.
Olson has led do it yourself programs at the library for the past two years. “Cold frames are simple, very small greenhouses that are used to start plants while the danger of frost could damage them.” Olson says they are easy to build, inexpensive and easily done with a hand saw and hammer. Besides doing library presentations, Olson works with his dog, Sir Jeffrey, who is a registered therapy dog.
