Permaculturist Diane Kennedy to speak to Friends of the Murrieta Library


MURRIETA – Diane Kennedy, owner of Finch Frolic Garden in Fallbrook, will be the March guest speaker for the Friends of the Murrieta Library Tuesday, March 17, at 10 a.m. in the Community Room of the Murrieta Public Library.

Certified in permaculture design, Kennedy is a freelance writer, blogger and naturalist. A former San Diego County park ranger, a San Diego Zoo Safari Park tour guide, a middle school librarian and a lifelong organic gardener, Kennedy has had experience in teaching all ages on a wide variety of subjects. Finch Frolic Garden is a 1.68-acre permaculture-based habitat located in Fallbrook and is an introduction to permaculture with basic landscape designs explained. Kennedy utilizes simple and inexpensive methods to garden, harvest, water and grow an abundance of food and ornamentals by using simple materials that the general public already has and can be applied to gardens of any size.

Not only do the Friends of the Murrieta Library provide support to the Murrieta Public Library through fundraising, advocacy and volunteerism, they promote awareness of and support for the library as it serves the informational, educational, cultural and recreational needs of the community. Their monthly meetings serve as a cultural event for residents, providing the opportunity to meet with established and published authors.

The Friends of the Murrieta Library invite the community to come and enjoy the presentation by Kennedy, visit with new friends and neighbors and enjoy the refreshments provided.

The library is located at 8 Town Square, on Adams Avenue between Juniper and Kalmia streets. For more information, call Rita Nastri at (951) 698-8640 or visit
