Salads, Seeds, and Pollinators at the Akron Mini Maker Faire

lettuceFood is a topic dear to the heart of many Makers, and Akron’s Makers are no exception. Master Gardeners of Summit County and the Akron-Summit County Public Library’s Seed Sharing Library are teeming up to present three different exhibits on Saturday.

Master Gardeners Mindy McCartney and Cheryl Urban will be on hand with info about local pollinators and what you can do to encourage them to visit your garden.

Plant some lettuce seeds in a peat pot to take home to start your winter salad garden! Explore methods of growing your own food, even as we get closer to winter.

“Check out” some seeds from our Seed Sharing Library.  This is the perfect time to start some indoor greens for the winter.

Do this, and more, at the Akron Mini Maker Faire this Saturday, November 2, 1-4 pm at the Akron Main Library, 60 S High Street in downtown Akron.
