The Vancouver Public Library (VPL) is expanding its programming to involve different types of literacy. As some of you know already, the CCFN partners with the Kensington branch of the VPL to put on our Seedy Saturday workshops. Speaking of which, our second one of the season is coming up this Saturday, May 2nd from 11am-1pm. The topic this time is garden maintenance, which includes seed saving. Help replenish the Seed Sharing Library next year by donating what you saved from this season. Registration is still open so reserve your seat now: kccseedsave.eventbrite.ca.
Then, on May 9th at 2:30pm, the VPL will be holding a food-related Kids Zone drop-in event. The kids will be able to make seed bombs to plant in their gardens. Making seed bombs is a form of guerrilla gardening, where balls of dirt are formed and filled with seeds so that when dropped, flowers and veggie plants will grow in that spot. This would be a fun introduction to gardening for younger children.
