Community + Demo Night on Seed Saving & Seed Libraries @ Ottawa Tool Library
Sep 25 @ 19:00 – 21:30

Sick of buying new seeds every year?

Join Jordan Bouchard, Coordinator of the Ottawa Seed Library & the Community Gardening Network at Just Food, to learn how you can save some simple seeds from your garden. Participants will learn foundational concepts to seed saving & will learn more specific instruction on some good beginner vegetables, as well as how you can contribute to your local seed libraries each year. After a short presentation Jordan will be available to answer your specific Seed Saving (& general gardening) questions to help you close out the 2017 season.

These evenings provide ample time to connect, ask questions, and just hang out chatting about projects and getting tips.

FREE to attend.

Do you need work space to get your DIY projects done?

Maybe you don’t want to schlepp that big planer home or you just need to make a few cuts on a table saw. You can now do that every 1st Wednesday of the month at our tool library.

Borrow the tools you need on site, without even having to drag them home! And best of all, benefit from the expertise and tips of Tool Ninjas and other Ottawa makers who will be on site to help you out.

Makers will share a workbench, with a max of two people per bench. Workbench space is limited and costs $5.00/hour, which must be reserved and paid for in advance via Eventbrite.

You may reserve for more than one hour. Painting, staining and activities resulting in fumes are not permitted at Makerspace North.

Access to workbench space is available to Ottawa Tool Library members in good standing, and they will be asked to check in with their membership card upon arrival.

Adults 55+ are free to use the work benches, but must register.

So, what will you build, refinish, repair, create, make?

Book space via Eventbrite.
