GWINN, Mich. (WLUC) - The Gwinn Seed Library opened on April 20th.

Steve Finley, the creator of the Gwinn Seed Library, said the event had a great turnout with over 70 people attending. He said many groups including the Boy Scouts and Let’s Grow KI are now involved.

The next event is May 28th; The First Gwinn Plant Swap is from 11:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Peter Nordeen Park, in downtown Gwinn.

The next workshop is all about planning for a garden. That is June 2, at 6:00 p.m., at the Forsyth Clubhouse Building.

On July 12, at 6:00 p.m. at Forsyth Township Clubhouse, learn about garden pests and what to do about them.

September 15 is a workshop about preparing, eating, canning and dehydrating foods that are harvested. That is at 6 p.m. at the Forsyth Township Clubhouse.
