Palermo Community Library’s new Living Library Collection

With a generous grant from Healthy Waldo County, the Superfoods program at the Palermo Library now has a collection of garden seeds which you can “borrow”, plant, and then when you harvest your produce in the fall, you save some of the seeds and return them to the library. The goal is to help folks create healthy food gardens and preserve seeds from the community. Right now there are ten sets of seeds patrons can check out, plus some extra seed packets anyone can take. If you want to participate in this exciting new program, please come in soon, while there is still time to plant. Also, note that you can get a membership card no matter where you live. The Palermo Community Library welcomes all.

The other new and exciting project happening at the library is the new community garden on the library grounds. The library can use all the help you have to offer in putting in raised bed gardens, and planting seeds and seedlings. Right now what is most needed is soil and compost, and lumber for the raised beds. But donations of garden tools, a rain barrel, pretty stones, or other garden decorations, as well as volunteers to build and plant, are very much appreciated as well.

Finally, the Saturday Morning Superfoods program will be starting up for the summer again, sometime early June. Come by and explore local, healthy, fun foods!

Free seed and scion exchange at MOFGA

For all you superfoods and local foods fans, check out the free seed and scion (tree branches that can grow into new trees) exchange at the Common Ground Fairgrounds (MOFGA) this coming Sunday. Bring seeds and scions to offer for free (or healthy snacks, or just your enthusiasm) and take home all kinds of wonderful things for free. It’s from noon to 4pm in Unity. Many of the seeds that we’ve been offering in the Superfoods program (which will be starting up again very soon!) came from this event last year.

For more information see the MOFGA event page.
