The annual CGC Seed Repackaging Party, to prepare seeds for distribution to participating gardeners, will take place on Sunday, February 18, 1-4 p.m. at Centro Latino (609 N. Garth Ave., Columbia). In exchange for helping us repack bulk seed into smaller quantities, the CGC will feed you lunch! But you must RSVP to by Feb. 14. We are only reserving 30 meals, so don’t wait to RSVP!

There will be representatives from all the gardens, so you join a garden as a newcomer or confirm a plot assignment for previous gardeners. Plus, everyone can network and get gardening advice from other gardeners. We’ll have a limited quantity of free seeds available for gardeners at member gardens.

There will also be snacks and drinks, plus get information about composting and City recycling from our special guest, Columbia Volunteer Programs Specialist Jody Cook.

Hope to see you there!
