Event InfoStart: March 4, 2023 - 1:00pm
End: March 4, 2023 - 3:30pm
The public is invited to celebrate the launch of the new Brown County Seed Library at a special event for adults and children set for Saturday, March 4th, 2023, 1pm to 3:30pm, at Brown County Central Library, 515 Pine Street, in Green Bay. A variety of fun and educational hands-on activities, demonstrations, and presentations related to seeds and gardening will be offered by the seven local organizations that have partnered to create the Seed Library.
Following a brief “vine-cutting” ceremony (approx. 1:10pm), this event is the first day to obtain seeds from this new community resource.
The Brown County Seed Library will be a curated collection of seeds – primarily edible plants – that are suited for success in our Northeastern Wisconsin growing region. These seeds will be available free of charge to anyone interested in planting vegetables, fruits and pollinator-friendly plants. The first year will focus on getting seeds into the hands of local growers of all ages. Educational programs and future initiatives will encourage seed-saving techniques to replenish the collection.
The Brown County Seed Library is a collaborative project of Brown County Community Gardens Program; Brown County Library; Green Bay Botanical Garden; New Leaf Foods, Inc; Northeastern Wisconsin Master Gardeners; University of Wisconsin – Green Bay; and UW-Madison Extension Brown County.
