Durham County Seed Library needs volunteers
Join other volunteers and gardening enthusiasts for the Seed Library Envelope Stuffing on Tuesday, December 11, 3–5pm, at the Durham General Services Department office (2011 Fay St). The Durham County Library Seed Library, where gardeners can donate and/or receive free seeds, made a bulk order of pollinator seeds from Mellow Marsh Farm. You can help divide the seeds into small portions and slide them into the small envelopes used by the Seed Library. Pollinator seeds attract bees and butterflies to gardens and yards, and food growers love it when they pollinate their crops.
