Traditionally, Spring is a time of renewal, rebirth, and of coming awake after a period of deep dreaming. For many, Spring is also a time of “cleansing” – whether it be detoxing your liver or cleaning your garage. Join herbalist Allison Dellner for this community class focused on a very special seasonal tonic as a way to support your liver as it performs its natural metabolic functions this spring. You will also learn about igniting the fires of digestion with bitter herbs and discuss forthcoming plants, as well as basic harvesting and medicine making techniques. We will then make a delicious Herbal Root Beer syrup to be added to seltzer for a refreshing treat!
It’s that time of year again!

Join your friends and neighbors in getting ready for the upcoming growing season with a community seed swap hosted by the MRV Libraries and ShareMRV. Seed swaps are a great way to try new crops, share some of your favorite seeds, and attend a fun event. This year we are also adding a garden tool swap.

We invite you to drop your seeds and tools to swap off at Joslin, Moretown or Warren libraries the week before the swap: March 25-April 1. Please follow these sharing guidelines to help ensure success:

1) The seeds you share should not be more than two years old.
2) Make sure to give seeds to us in a clearly marked packet so we know what they are.
3) Garden tools should be clean and functional with no broken parts. No power tools please.

Seeds and tools may also be brought directly to the swap. Whether you have something to share or are new to gardening, everyone is invited to attend and take home seeds and tools. All remaining seeds after the swap will be donated to our Little Seed Libraries for future use by community members.

We are hosting Handcraft & Chat nights on the first and third Tuesday evenings from 5:30PM-7:30PM at Town Hall.
3/7 & 3/21
4/4 & 4/18
5/2 & 5/16

This is open to any and all hand-crafters to come share space and create community while working on independent projects in a cozy setting.

We invite children and their caregivers to join us for Read & Play on Fridays at 10:30am. Enjoy free play big and small, then finish up with stories and songs.
