Free Seminar For All Gardeners

The Coquille Valley Seed Library is hosting a FREE garden seminar on Thursday, September 12th, 6pm at the St. James Episcopal Church, 210 East 3rd, Coquille. They will be hosting their Tomato Tasting event, and the public is invited to bring home-grown, open-pollinated tomatoes to share for sampling. Arrive 30 minutes early and bring 2-3 full-sized tomatoes or 10 cherry tomatoes of each variety (identified by name) to be shared with the group. If you are tomato-less but would like to learn more about the qualities and flavor of tomatoes which can be grown in our area, feel free to come and enjoy the tasting.

Additionally, Biodynamic gardener Heike Marie Eubanks will discuss seed cleaning, and Master Gardener Ann Ibach will discuss saving seed from our plant of the month – spinach. If you are interested in gardening, seed saving, biodiversity, and/or organic growing methods the seed library is for YOU! They invite you to help grow and preserve locally adapted vegetable and herb varieties by becoming a Coquille Valley Seed Library member. For more information:
