The Berkshire Seed Library, a program organized through the Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield’s public library, will host a seed-saving workshop 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2 at the library.
The workshop, which is free and open to the public, will be led by Julia Lemieux, of Windy Hill Farm in Great Barrington, who will demonstrate techniques for proper seed storage.
“Growing your own food is about discovery, gaining new skills and connecting with your community,” says Outreach Librarian Samuel Reggio. “Additionally, seed saving can be a great way to increase community resilience.”
The Berkshire Seed Library was created to increase access to healthy vegetables and other plants and to promote the activity of gardening. The seed library is sponsored by the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum.
The Berkshire Athenaeum is located at 1 Wendell Ave.
