    Greenwood Lake — The Green Thumb garden series at the Greenwood Lake Public Library presents its fall gardening programs with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Orange County master gardeners. Cornell’s master gardeners return this fall to present the following educational gardening and craft programs at the Library: Wildlife challenges in the home garden, Saturday, Nov. 19, from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Is wildlife an issue in your yard? Are you beginning to sing, “Raccoons and Turkeys and Bears, oh my?” Is it getting “wildly” out of control? If so, come join Cornell’s Master Gardeners at this informative program to discover the main types of animals which can be a problem for gardeners and how you and wildlife can peacefully co-exist. Herbal soaps for gift-giving, Saturday, Dec. 10, from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. You don’t need to pay high prices for fancy, scented soaps; you can make your own fragrant concoctions with some simple ingredients and a little know-how. Join Cornell’s master gardeners to learn how to make herbal soaps using your home-grown herbs at this “fragrant” program. Registration is required for these free adult programs either in person or by telephone at 845-477-8377 ext. 101. Seating is limited; early registration suggested. The library is located at 79 Waterstone Road in Greenwood Lake.
