Seed library kicks off on Saturday

MONMOUTH — The OSU Extension Master Gardeners will present a starting seeds seminar at the Monmouth Public Library at 11 a.m. on Saturday.

The free presentation will include a hands-on activity of planting seeds to take home.

“The first year of our seed library was very successful,” Librarian Krist Obrist said. “We gave out over 3,200 packets of seeds, both vegetable and flower seeds.”

At Saturday’s event, participants may learn about the program and some of the classes that will be offered throughout the year. Door prizes and light refreshments will be available.

“We will be announcing a pumpkin growing contest as well as information about this year’s garden photo contest,” Obrist said.

The seed lending library allows adults to receive up to five seed packets a day, no library card required.
