It’s been a long winter and the snow is receding, the sun is getting stronger and the soil is getting warmer. We’ve been busy adding seeds to the library, running germination tests to check viability and vigor of saved seed and others in the collection and starting seedlings for the May Mosaic. We also have a few events planned that we’re really excited about. And along with the events are a host of opportunities to get involved either as a participant or volunteer.
A Seedy Situation: Join Frogtown Farm, Urban Farm and Garden Alliance, Frogtown Neighborhood Association and Como Community Seed Library for all things seed on April 7th. For details follow the above link.
Seeds of Hope Community Garden Kickoff: Sunday, April 22nd. Earth Day!! 2:30-4:30 pm. 965 Larpenteur Ave. W. (Victoria and Larpenteur),Roseville MN 55113. Come check out the community garden, check out seeds and resources from CCSL and hear why seed saving and locally adapted seed are important to a resilient food system. Seed saving is a fun way to share with your neighbors.

More to come…
CCSL needs you to grow….literally!
We’re looking for gardeners, urban farmers, and urban/suburban homesteaders who would like to help us grow out certain seed varieties in the library that haven’t seen soil in a few years and are at risk. They need to be planted to grow and seed again. Help us further the CCSL mission of sowing, growing and sharing as well as increasing the locally adapted seed stock and self-sustaining nature of the library by being a volunteer grower. Details and signup are here.
