Subject: Michigan Seed Library Summit Oct. 13 

We are excited to announce the First Annual Michigan Seed Library Summit! It will be held at the Lyon Township Public Library on October 13, 2019 from 10 am to 3 am. 
If you manage, steward, or maintain a seed library, or want to create a seed library in your community, we would love to have you join us! This is your chance to meet your fellow seed librarians in person and share your successes, challenges, and good ideas! 
We will have round-table discussions about the following topics: 
Sources for seed donations 
Packaging ideas, displaying, and storing seeds 
Improving the return rate of borrowed seeds 
Supporting your seed library with programming 
Youth outreach and programming 
Marketing your seed library

Well known speaker and author Ben Cohen will be in attendance, and we all value his experience with helping to open seed libraries all over Michigan! 
Ben has also promised to bring seeds to share! If you also have surplus seeds, please bring them along. You can swap with your fellow seed librarians or share with a seed library that is still getting off the ground. 

The library will provide bagels, snacks, and drinks. Please bring a brown bag lunch, or, if you prefer, food is available for delivery. If you want to bring something to share, please do! 
The address is 27005 S. Milford Road, South Lyon Michigan 48178. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to be involved in any way. 
Please join us and start what we hope will be an annual tradition!
