Get your hands a little dirty at the In the Garden group's January meeting, where members will do some winter sowing.
Join In the Garden at 1 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26, in the downstairs meeting room to try your hand at winter sowing with native seeds! Bring translucent gallon jugs (such as those used for distilled water) and potting soil for the project. The Syracuse Public Library will provide native seeds (you can bring seeds if you want to), duct tape and permanent markers.
Not interested in doing winter sowing this year? You are still invited to attend and watch the process. You'll also learn about what In the Garden has planned for 2023.
While at the library, don't forget to pick up 2023's recommended reading: "The Triumph of Seeds" by Thor Hanson; "The Book of Eels" by Patrik Svensson; and "The Invention of Nature" by Andrea Wulf. These books tell a story about the natural world while crafting a tale about how that story became important to the author. Hanson shares the love of seeds with his young son; Svensson gets to know his father through eel fishing; and Wulf follows the arduous trek of Alexander Von Humboldt in South America. Another recommended book that will amaze and has many examples is "An Immense World: How Animal Senses Reveal the Hidden Realms Around Us" by Ed Yong.
