A quick reminder that the Seed Library of Los Angeles (SLOLA) meets again this Saturday, January 14, from 2:30 to 4:00 pm, at The Learning Garden. SLOLA Chair David King will kick off the meeting with his "New Year's Resolutions for Seed Savers" -- some fun and practical tips on what (and what not) to do with seed saving in mind. And at the close of the meeting, members may again check out seeds for free from the ever-expanding library.
By the way, you might also like to know that Bill McDorman, Executive Director of Native Seed/SEARCH and the primary instructor at the seed school David King recently attended, will be giving the keynote lecture for 4th Annual Seed Swap sponsored by Santa Barbara Permaculture Network and Fairview Gardens, on Friday, January 27, from 7:00 to 9:30 pm, at the Santa Barbara Downtown Public Library Faulkner Gallery, 40 E. Anapamu St., Santa Barbara, CA 93101. Admission is just $5 and reservations are not required. For more information, please call (805) 962-2571 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. (McDorman will also lead the Seed School Workshop the following day.) Those interested in attending can discuss carpooling at the Saturday SLOLA meeting!
