We recently received the following e-mail from a community organization called Grow Portland (also see a PDF flier with additional information here):
Local nonprofit Grow Portland is gearing up for its third annual Seed Club. For the Seed Club, Grow Portland buys organic vegetable seeds in bulk from socially responsible suppliers. These seeds are repacked into smaller sizes and made available to home gardeners, schools, and non-profits at affordable prices.
This March and April, Grow Portland is hosting four sessions to pack these seeds. At these sessions, gardeners have a chance to socialize and learn with other growers, pack vegetable seeds, and take home 15 seed packets of their own.
Our Buckman neighborhood packing session will be Monday, March 12th 7-8:30 pm at Green Dragon (928 SE Belmont St). Gardeners sign up online in advance to attend.
See our website to sign up, and for more information on membership options for schools and nonprofits: http://www.growportland.org. Contact Lauren with additional questions: firstname.lastname@example.org, 503-858-0216.
