It’s planting season! For the eleventh year, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has partnered with Grow Pittsburgh and Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens to bring you the Celebration of Seeds. We’re also excited to announce that we’ve expanded gardening programming to five CLP branches this year.
This year, we’re bringing back the Annual Seed Swap at CLP-Main, a four-hour event featuring gardening workshops, seed giveaways, creative activities for children and teens and so much more. For more information or to register, check out the event here.
You can also find a Seed Starting workshop at CLP-Sheraden, The 411 on Leafy Greens, a workshop centered on best practices for leafy greens and tomatoes at CLP-Homewood, Gardening for the Whole Family at CLP-Woods Run, and Seed Germination Necklaces at CLP-Mt. Washington. Check out our events page for more information on these workshops! The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank will host No Cost Farmers Markets at several events, so bring your reusable grocery bag if you plan to check out the workshops at CLP-Sheraden, CLP-Homewood, or CLP-Woods Run!
