Milk Jug Winter Sowing Workshops
Greetings! This season’s Milk Jug Winter Sowing workshops are scheduled for early January, in all three Hamden Library branches:
* Brundage Library, 91 Circular Avenue, Wednesday, January 3, 6–7:45 p.m.
* Miller Library, 2901 Dixwell Avenue, Saturday, January 6, 2–4 p.m.
* Whitneyville Library, 125 Carleton Street, Thursday, January 11, 6–7:45 p.m.
These lively sessions will include an overview of planting for pollinators, and then we will each put together a mini greenhouse that will spend the winter outdoors, a practical method for starting the seeds of a wide range of native perennial plants.
As in years past, we will make these seeds available during the three workshops, and also by request through a website form.
We are cleaning and sorting our collection of native and pollinator seeds to make them available to you. Our updated list of native seeds will be on the website close to the end of the year. Each year we have been fortunate to have more and more seeds from local residents, as well as several types of ecotype 59 varieties.
