“Starting Seeds & “Seed Swap” at Library

The Flora’s from Richland Gardens.
Because of winter weather the Greenville Public Library had to postpone its February 19th event “Starting Seeds” by Edward Flora from Richland Gardens. Edward will now be at the Library on Thursday March 12th at 6:30 pm. Don’t miss this informative, informal, and educational session in the 3rd floor Meeting Room.

At the same time there will be a “seed swap!” Bring your extra seeds and trade them for something you need or have been wanting to try. Remember, these are heirloom, open-pollinated seeds that grow year after year - no hybrids or GMO’s allowed.

These programs are part of the Growing Harvest Seed Library. Librarian Rachel Brock started the Seed Library last year with 29 members and hopes for a big increase this year. The idea is to borrow seeds, plant them, and return a few from your harvest to the Library for next year. She explains the program needs to become self-sustaining with local seeds because they will have adapted to our climate and soil.

Come and get some great sowing ideas and new seeds! Refreshments will be served.
