Growing Literacy AT CML: Sowing Native Seeds with Ellen Maling In-Person


Please join us for our annual winter garden workshop series, Growing Literacy. This year we are proud to host 6 talks through collaboration with Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust, Growing to Give and Curtis Memorial Library. Two of these talks will be on local farms, three on Zoom and one in-person at Curtis Memorial Library. Bring your curiosity, questions and join us!


Join Ellen Maling and the volunteers from the Tom Settlemire Community Garden Perennial Team for this in-person event at the Morrell Meeting Room in the Curtis Memorial Library. We'll be preparing locally harvested, beneficial and native seeds for winter sowing at the Community Garden's nursery and will make seed balls or a small pot of seeds to take home. Bring your questions about native plants and be ready to get your hands dirty! Please note: this is an indoors in-person event with a limited capacity. More details about this event including directions will be shared with registrants. 


Ellen Maling and the volunteer Perennial Team at the Tom Settlemire Community Garden work year round tending and growing an array of perennials, biennials, herbs, vegetable seedlings, annual seedlings, heirloom variety plants, shrubs, small trees and vines. Each year the Land Trust’s Tom Settlemire Community Garden hosts the ‘Taking Root’ Plant Sale thanks to the effort of these incredible volunteers as a fundraiser in support of the Garden.
