Know about seeds? Want to improve your seed saving knowledge and connect with like-minded individuals? Like working with and educating the public?
Seed librarians will be in charge of our Seed Library during events around Richmond from February to June, then October & November. They will educate the public on seed saving techniques, and why it is such a valuable skill to have. They will answer questions, give advice, and help individuals ‘sign-out’ seeds. Basic seed knowledge and/or gardening is preferred, but training will be provided. Library sessions will typically be 3 hours, twice per month, not including travel time. Access to a vehicle is preferred, as the Seed Library may need transporting to location. Librarians will always work in groups of at least 2, so it’s a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and expand your skills and knowledge about seeds, gardening and our greater ecosystem!
A full position description can be found here.
Most sessions will run either Saturday or Sunday afternoon from 1:30-4:30 at either Brighouse or Ironwood branches. Other seed library events will be scheduled next year.
