DIG IT: Anythink hosts month-long series celebrating gardening and backyard farming
This March, Anythink customers are invited to explore all things gardening and backyard farming with Dig It. From indoor planting to creating your own food business, Dig It provides opportunities for people at all experience levels and ages to learn and share new skills. To help meet the diverse interests of the community, Anythink has partnered with a variety of partners and experts, including The GrowHaus, Colorado State University Extension, Butterfly Pavilion and the Colorado Cactus & Succulent Society. Through these partnerships and programs, the library aims to empower individuals to take pride in their passions and environment, while also celebrating Adams County’s established agricultural roots. Each Anythink location will host several opportunities for all age ranges to participate.
“As we celebrate Anythink’s 10-year anniversary this year, the library staff is reflecting on the interests and passions of our community and creating district-wide initiatives surrounding those interests,” says Anythink Director of Innovations and Brand Strategy Stacie Ledden. “From Anythink’s community gardens to our annual embryology programs to the goats that have become synonymous with Anythink – not to mention the deep agricultural history we have here in Adams County – gardening and backyard farming are wildly popular. Our community will love the slate of programs we have in store for Dig It this March.”
Dig It is the first in a series of three district-wide celebrations hosted by Anythink in 2019. Combined as Dig It | Pop It | Own It, this comprehensive programming initiative provides opportunities throughout the year for the community to discover their passions. In May, Pop It will celebrate all things pop culture in conjunction with Denver Pop Culture Con (formerly Denver Comic Con). In September, customers are encouraged to further develop career and life skills to help them get ahead with Own It. Together, Dig It | Pop It | Own It provides a platform for Adams County residents to create community, explore culture, and nourish personal and professional aspirations.
