As you start thinking about what to plant in your garden next spring, you might want to think about saving some seeds from this year.
The C.M. Shields branch of the Timmins Public Library in South Porcupine has a Zoom event next Thursday, September 9th to discuss seed saving.
Branch head Louise Gaudette says master gardener Catherine Cribbs will lead the discussion.
“Seed saving is important to the biodiversity of the area,” Gaudette states. “So the more you save seeds from plants that you grow in this area, the more these seeds are better acclimated to our area.”
“The little bit of genetics gets changed just a little bit every time, but it gets better and better every time you plant these seeds and save from them.”
It also stocks the seed library at the South Porcupine branch.
You can register at the library for the session. Gaudette says it will be recorded for later viewing.
