February 15th, 2014: Seed Library Opening + Potluck 5-7pm

We're going to kick off the gardening year with the opening of the Seed Library.In case you missed Carol Muncer's excellent description, a seed library is an opportunity to "borrow" seeds, just as you would borrow books.  You sign out seeds of something you would like to plant, grow them, and, though you eat most of your produce, you let a few plants go to seed so you can (if all goes well)  return at least as many seeds as you borrowed to the library.  Seeds, like books, are expensive to buy.  This is a wonderful opportunity to get them free, and also, importantly, to promote food-growing self-sufficiency in our community.

This event will take place February 15th from 5:00 to 7:00 at Saint Mary's church, 780 McEvoy st.  The snow date is February 22, same time and place. We will start with a potluck at 5:00 and then open the library for borrowing.  if bringing something for the potluck please bring an ingredient list in case of allergies. Mark your calendar.
