Seed Library of LA Meeting This Saturday

Join the Seed Library of Los Angeles (SLOLA) on Saturday, February 16th, from 2:30-4:00 pm for their monthly meeting, presentation and library hours.

This month, SLOLA Chair David King presents "Sex in the City: Lessons from Urban Pollination"

Description from their site: "All the published work on seed saving supposes we are saving seeds out in the country side with miles and miles of horizon. This is not exactly what we deal with and therefore their conclusions are not necessarily applicable to our work. From practical experience, David King will explain how most modern research on plant pollination deviates from our reality and how we can use this data, adapting it to our specific situation to save seed without making ourselves crazy."

All SLOLA meetings are free and open anyone. HOWEVER, a lifetime membership costs only $10 and you can check out heirloom and non-GMO seeds from the library with your membership.

They just received a huge donation from Baker Creek this December.

Meetings are held at: The Learning Garden at Venice High School (13000 Venice Blvd, enter on Walgrove).
