Erin shows its ‘seedy’ side

Almost planting time – The Erin Seed Library hosted a drive-thru Seedy Saturday event on March 6 at McMillan Park in Erin. From left are: Jen Edwards, Matthew Forbes, Connie Bienia, Shari Penty and Bonnie Malenfant. Edwards hosted the event with help from local vendors and volunteers from the Erin and Hillsburgh garden clubs.

Despite the chilly day, everyone who had ordered seeds was able to pick up their orders. But if you missed the event, it’s not too late. The Erin seed library is still well stocked and will be open until the end of spring, says Edwards, who operates the seed library.
