A Master Gardener answers your questions about BCPL’s Seed Library
Friday, March 1, 10–11 a.m., Library Main Gallery
John Coykendall, Master Gardener at Blackberry Farm, seed historian and seed saver extraordinaire, will be here to answer your seed questions. Pick up coffee and a snack at the Bookmark Café and settle in for a great conversation with Mr. Coykendall in the Library’s Main Gallery. He will be available until 11 a.m. or so, for some fun and fellowship, talking seeds.
