During the long winter months, many gardeners enjoy receiving a wide variety of gardening catalogs in the mail. Browsing through colorful pages filled with luscious plants and delectable fruits and vegetables can banish the winter blues or at least help Spring seem less far away. But what if your garden dreaming could happen at the Library?
During the month of March, the Woodford County Library will open its first Seed Library at the Versailles location. You may ask: what is a seed library? A seed library is a collection of seeds that may be checked out from the library – for free! During the March gardening programs at the Library, the Woodford County Master Gardeners and Woodford County Horticulture Extension Agent Faye Tewksbury will be handing out seeds and encouraging seed saving. These free seeds are all heirloom varieties of lettuce, kale, swiss chard, spinach, radish, summer squash, cucumber, zucchini and beans. Each Woodford County family may “check out” one packet per variety, grow them in their family garden, then save and share their own seeds in the fall. These seeds will be available year-round or until supplies run out.
Is there someone who inspires you? Someone who has helped you out of a tight spot? Someone that you have always admired?
Now is your opportunity to show and tell people who your personal hero is and why. From now until April 15 we are asking everyone who would like to honor a special person to bring a picture into the Library of your hero in preparation for our "Heroes" display in the Gallery in June and July. The picture should be no larger and 5" x 7". Please also include a brief written explanation of why this person is your hero. All ages may participate.
You may bring submissions to the Main Library's front desk or e-mail submissions to email@example.com. The deadline is April 15. Questions? Call Jen at the Library at 873-5191.
