Evanston Food Exchange is bringing students together to winter sow seeds for the garden on February 7th. By using recycled gallon water jugs, the kids will make mini-greenhouses that live in the garden and sprout the seeds in the spring. You can do this at home!
Free Seeds are available from Edible Evanston at the seed swap on March 10th 2:30 pm Evanston Ecology Center.
