A program on the local seed lending library in Jackson County will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 8 at the county extension office.
The program is sponsored by the Jackson/Swain Master Gardner Association and the speaker will be Jenny McPherson. McPherson started the seed lending library in Jackson County.
“A big part of the success of any seed library is for users to learn how to properly save seeds,” says McPherson. “I am still learning a lot about seed saving and hope that the seed library will encourage others to get involved too — either by sharing their knowledge or taking the time to learn proper seed saving methods.”
This event is open to the public and will be followed by a short business meeting with Master Gardener members.
