The Sidney Library is excited to be part of the county wide Seed Swap program again this year. Look for the small wooden card catalog near our main desk.
We have a small variety of seeds to start off the program. Bring in your old seeds (from 2015) or leftovers from this spring’s planting. Flower, herb, and vegetable seeds are all welcome. See what’s here, and help yourself to a few seeds for your own garden.
The Sidney Library will be part of a county-wide Seed Swap program now through the end of May. Look for the old fashioned card catalog, which will be full of seed packets (flowers, vegetables, and herbs). You are welcome to take what you will use for your own garden.
In addition, if you have leftover seeds from 2014 or 2015, you can bring them in to share with others. It is a fun and free way to see what types of seeds are out there, and to add some variety to your garden. We hope you enjoy them!
We often find bugs annoying, but there are lots of insects that help keep gardens and plants healthy. If you would like to learn more about beneficial insects and the types of plants that attract them, you will not want to miss our upcoming program. On Tuesday 4/7 at 6:30pm, Linda Svoboda from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County will present on this topic. Veteran and new gardeners alike are sure to learn a few tips from Ms. Svoboda. We hope you will join us for this free program.
Cornell Cooperative Extension has organized a workshop designed to help you get the most from your food budget. On January 9th, 16th, and 30th at 6:30pm, CCE will share tips on how to be more successful while grocery shopping and suggestions for healthy, inexpensive meals. There will also be food demonstrations, recipes, and physical activity ideas for participants.
The full description of this series of workshops can be found on the Programs page. It is important that interested patrons please register online or by calling the library.
