The Seymour Branch Library plans to plant seeds of knowledge with their upcoming free winter gardening classes, sponsored by the Seymour Farmers Market.
The classes will be held the last Monday night of Jan., Feb. and Mar. from 7 – 9 p.m. in the community room entrance on the left side of the library.
The gardening topics that will be addressed include water conservation and produce contamination via water sources (Jan. 28); pesticides and pollinator protection (Feb. 25) and seed saving and plant swapping (Mar. 25).
The class, which has been meeting for the past five years, has had a positive influence on the Seymour community, according to Market Manager of the Seymour Farmers Market, Marjorie Richardson.
“These classes are open to the public, and we have had a good response for the past 5 years of classes. We so much appreciate [the community’s]support of our efforts as we are an all volunteer organization,” she said.
Those interested in attending the Seymour Farmers Market free winter gardening classes, call and leave a message at 453-0130 to reserve a seat in order to help the group set up adequate seating. Also, include contact information so the group can notify those interested in case of inclement weather.
