Seed Library Open House

Saturday, April 20th from 11 AM to 1 PM

The Seed Library is gearing up for the second growing season; sponsored again by the Lubec Memorial Library, the Lubec Garden Club and the Lubec Community Outreach Center.  Thanks to generous donors we are continuing the gardening tradition here in Lubec.  We have seeds for every style of garden: organic, vegetable, herb, or flower.  We will be filling varieties as we receive them and should be fully stocked by mid-April.  Stop in often to see what’s available. If you have a special request let us know and we can try to find it for you. And if you have some seeds to donate, we will be happy to use them.
Join us on Saturday, April 20th from 11 AM to 1 PM at the Seed Library, which is located inside the Lubec Memorial Library near the service desk. We will have a garden raffle with some cute items and a garden club member will be on hand to answer questions on seed starting, gardening and use of the seed library.   Cookies and lemonade will be served also.
The seeds are arranged alphabetically.  We have seed envelopes and other supplies so that you can take just a few seeds, several seeds or an entire pack depending on your needs.  Start your garden here at the library! 
“Think small – plant tiny seeds in the small space you are given – you can change the world – or at least your view of it.”  

Climate Solutions Virtual Workshop –

Hope for a Healthy Planet Online

This program will be presented via Zoom at the Lubec Memorial Library on April 22 from 6-8 PM in our Community Room.

Climate Change can sometimes feel overwhelming, but did you know that we already have the solutions we need to solve it? Knowing which solutions are most effective can help us set priorities and lead us away from anxiety and into hope. Please join us for a special Earth Day presentation by Laurie Manos of Citizens Climate Lobby & Education, to learn more about a few of these varied solutions and how they can be combined to reduce emissions to keep our planet healthy. You’ll come out of this program equipped with knowledge about climate fixes from the global MIT ENROADs model and what you can do to make a real environmental difference. Join us!  


Tuesday, April 23: Green Burial Options:

       THE IMPORTANCE OF NATIVE PLANTS

Join local resident and independent field botanist Louise Barteau for an illustrated talk at the Lubec Memorial Library on Saturday, April 27 at 2:30PM. This talk will focus on the importance of native plants to local ecology and biodiversity, which plants are considered native to Washington County, and why we should care about what we plant (and what we remove) from our gardens, fields and forests.

Louise Barteau has been deeply involved in locating, identifying and restoring native New England flora since 2003. She is a member of both the New England Botanical Society and received her certificate in Advanced Field Botany from the New England Wildflower Society (now Native Plant Trust in 2015)
