Let's Get Growing!

Seed Swap

Posted on March 22, 2018 - 10:59am

If you're itching to get out in your yard this spring after a long cold winter, here's the best place to start! Linn County Master Gardeners have one more program left in their spring series, and we have a couple of related options.  All programs are free and open to the public.

  • March 28, 6:30-7:30 p.m.: A Taste of Herbs, presented by Judy Bemer. Learn how and where to grow herbs, as well as how to use and preserve them. Judy will introduce some new herbs and discuss those that may be familiar as well. A "cuppa tea" and herbal goodies will be served to enjoy with the class.
  • March 28, 7:30-8:00 p.m.:  Immediately following A Taste of Herbs, join fellow green thumbs in a community seed swap!  Free seeds are available through Iowa BIG student Chase Krug’s seed saving project.
  • April 18th, 7:00-8:30 p.m.: Documentary Night. Seed: The Untold Story follows passionate seed-keepers protecting our 12,000-year-old food legacy. These farmers, scientists, lawyers and indigenous people are fighting a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds.

If you have any questions or suggestions about library programming, please stop by the Information Desk.  We’re here to help!
