Seed Swap at Library

The Growing Harvest Seed Library is hosting its annual “Seeds 4 All: Seed Swap” on Thursday February 1st in the upstairs meeting room at the Greenville Public Library. This year special guest speaker Sam Custer, Extension Educator of the Agriculture & Natural Resources department at the OSU Extension Office of Darke County, will be presenting The Art of Seed Saving following the Seed Swap.

Sam will be discussing the preparations to consider when saving seeds. Topics include types of seeds and how they are pollinated, time of seed bearing, open-pollinated versus hybrid seeds, and harvesting and processing seeds.

Seed swapping will take place from 5-6 pm and 7-8 pm, with the presentation running from 6-7 pm. If you are participating in the seed swap please make sure that seeds are clean and clearly labeled with type (eg. tomato) and variety (eg. brandywine). Packaging of seeds can vary. Any seed left will be inventoried into the Growing Harvest Seed Library.

Everyone is welcome to attend this free event. Reservations are not required but helpful for set-up. As always refreshments will be served. For more information please call 548-3915 or visit the Library’s Facebook Event Page. This is a fun and informal event so be sure to come and have a good time getting ready for spring planting!
