Just a quick post tonight as I want to make sure gardening folks know about this event happening at the Washougal branch library on Saturday, March 31st, 11 AM to 3 PM. See flyer below for details.
The Washougal branch library is partnering with WSU Master Gardeners in creating the first seed bank in SW Washington joining similar library seed bank projects throughout the country. The idea is that people will be able to check out packets of seeds to plant and grow at home. Later, after harvesting, people will return a portion of saved seeds back to the library for the next person to check out.
More information here in this Camas-Washougal Post-Record article.
Currently the seed bank is stocked with heirloom herbs, vegetables, and flowers. If you would like to donate seeds to the seed bank please bring them labelled with as much information as possible; name, variety, when harvested, heirloom, native, hybrid, etc. Call the library at 360.906.4860 for more information.
