January 2016 Newsletter
Our new year's resolution for 2016 is to make this the best season ever for the Concord Seed Lending Library
Located at the Fowler Branch of the Concord Free Public Library, the CSLL will be hosting a Seed Packing Party on Saturday, January 16 at 3 p.m. Stop by to help us get the Seed Library ready to open! We’ll be getting packets of seeds prepared for our gardeners to borrow when the seed library opens for the season and your help is needed. Let us know if you can make it by sending an RSVP to concordseedlendinglibrary.org.
The Concord Seed Lending Library will officially open on Saturday, February 13 with our 3 p.m. kickoff program, Indoor Seed Starting 101. Learn to start seeds in your house to get a jump on the growing season with Seed Lending Library co-founder Enid Boasberg. There will also be a Seed Swap so you can bring in unused seeds to swap with other local gardeners.
On Saturday, February 27 at 3 p.m., Lise Holdorf and Melissa Maxwell of Barrett’s Mill Farm will talk about how they select the best varieties of seed to grow for their farm at The ABCs of Choosing Seeds.
