Summer Seed Lending Programs ….On Wednesday, June 22nd at 7pm, Certified Organic Gardener Bill Paradis will discuss pests and bugs in the garden. The program is free and open to all. Refreshments will be served.
On Wednesday, July 20th at 7pm, Paradis will discuss the summer garden including sustainable methods for managing the summer garden in times of heat or drought, or when the gardener is away. There will also be an introduction to seed saving.
The seed lending library is open to the public, providing a wide variety of vegetable and flower seeds. Plant the seeds at home or in your community garden, enjoy the harvest, then save the seeds and return them to the seed library for others to plant next season.
