Seed Library Workshop **At Seedy Saturday**

Much like a regular library, where books are used and shared, seed libraries are a way for local communities to share and exchange, use and learn about plants that thrive in Eastern Ontario.

Hundreds of seed libraries have opened and are running across North America, and Ottawa is ready to grow some of our own.

The workshop at Seedy Saturday will be conducted by Kate Green of Seeds of Diversity, in partnership with Just Food. Participants will learn the basics of how seed libraries work, and how seed libraries could get started in your community.  Bring your interest and your ideas!
