Mora Grows Seed Lending Library welcomes you to its first seed interchange. This event will be the first of many to come. The interchange will be held at the at Tapetes de Lana, on March 23rd, 2013, from 9:00AM-11AM. Tapetes de Lana has graciously welcomed our presence for this event. They are located at the corner of Hwy 518 & Hwy 434. Their website is: http://moravalleyspinningmill.com/
Our purpose is to save and share seeds that have been adapted to the area, as well as to educate those who have little experience in the art of saving seeds. Events for children will be announced after our first seed interchange. The lending library will be a place for you and your family to obtain and to pass on seeds that have been cherished by locals, strengthening our community’s ability to sustain itself, and passing on wisdom from generation to generation. Protecting our resources and keeping our seed stock safe from genetically modified seeds is one of our goals.
If you feel called to help with this endeavor, there are several ways in which you may help:
1. Promote event
2. Create table signs
3. Create educational posters
4. Find volunteers
5. Day of the event orientation help
6. Clean up
We will organize our tables, as well as our library, by plant families. We are in need of a wooden cabinet with many small drawers – we will repair it or refinish it if necessary. If you possess computer, artistic, organizational, gardening skills, or if you simply wish to help and don’t know how, we invite you to contact Marleny Alfaro, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you there! Or before!
