Spring is here! Officially, anyway!
And the Library is reopening its Seed Exchange in anticipation of the upcoming growing season.
We always need donations of seed!
Please check your seeds to see what you can spare and drop off your extras at the front desk, anytime during regular library hours.
All we ask is that the seeds be carefully labelled, not-too-old, and were stored in cool dry conditions so they will germinate properly. If you want to check the “life expectancy” of different kinds of seeds, there is a viability chart with this information on top of the Seed Exchange (or look online).
Starting now, seeds in the Seed Exchange are available –self-serve– when the library is open.
We’re having an informal drop-in gathering on Saturday April 8, 10 – 12. Please stop by the Library community room to donate some seeds, take some seeds, and meet some fellow gardeners.
We’ll answer questions about seed saving and storage and also have a demo of how to do your own seed germination test.
Everyone is welcome (even if you don’t have seeds to donate.)
Once again we will keep a clipboard by the Seed Exchange so gardeners looking for (or offering) particular plants can write their request and connect with someone who might have what they want.
We also plan to hold our 4th Annual Plant Swap/Giveaway on Saturday May 13th, 10-2. As you start your seedlings and dig and divide your perennials this spring, save your extras to donate to this fun and well-attended event!
