Free class on how to save seeds is offered Tuesday September 26 at 6:30-7:30 pm at the White Bear Lake library.
Learn the appropriate techniques to collect and save seeds to grow tasty vegetables or beautiful flowers next year. Learn what cross-pollination means and when you want it to happen and when you don't. Find out what seeds are collected for the Seed Library. Also, learn an easy way to get a head start growing plants for next season.
This class will be repeated on Wednesday, September 27 at 6:30-7:30 pm at the Shoreview library.
The Seed Library relies on donations of seeds, so please consider saving seeds from your own garden produce (peas, beans, tomatoes, lettuce or native plants) or donate an open-pollinated package of seeds.
So far this year the Seed Library has given out 1,338 packets of seeds this year!
To make next season even better we need your donations.
Later this fall we will be packaging seeds, so watch your email for the announcement. Lots of hands makes the job go fast.
Also, if you have seed suggestions of plants you would like to grow, please let me know. We have a small amount of funds to purchase seeds for next season.
Enjoy this season of harvest!Pam
