OCG is Getting Ready for the Greenville Graffiti Car Show!

 We're getting our Owl Creek Gazette storefront window ready for this weekend's Greenville Graffiti Car Show (and an Evening at the Diner) -- with a nod to the event's "Happy Days" theme -- and with a little help from some cool props courtesy of Don's Uniques and Repairs.


Plus Terra Mater Botancials will be at the Owl Creek Gazette  office during the Car Show selling a sampling of their new line of Gluten-Free baked goods. A selection of Apple Cinnamon Muffins and Chocolate Almond Brownies will be available. PLUS, we'll be selling our "Tea by Two" blends that  Jan Stover and Roxanne Bare have been developing each month -- along with a specially created "These Happy Days" blend for the event ... 
all at the OCG office at 112 South Second Street in Greenville, IL on Saturday, June 18th.

Exposium Seed Swap Open to the Public at No Charge


We're pleased to announce our Owl Creek Gazette "Journeys in Self-Reliance" Exposium SEED SWAP will be open to the public at NO CHARGE.

Our Exposium Keynote Speaker, Adam Turtle, co-founder of Earth Advocates Research Farm, originally suggested we add a Seed Swap to this year's activities. We thought it was a great idea and are pleased it has resonated with folks far and wide.

In addition to Adam and OCG writer, Roxanne Bare, assisting with this portion of the Exposium, we're pleased that Johnna Schultz of the Effingham Public Library "Seed Library" will be adding her assistance, experience, as well as bringing the Seed Library's seeds to the event too.


A bit about the Seed Library:

It began with funding from the Lumpkin Family Foundation, and the Effingham Public Library Seed Library has been available to the public for the past three years.

Most of the seeds shared are "easy" vegetable and flower seeds that are hardy and traditionally grown in Central Illinois.

Seed packets are checked out for a year - giving gardeners an opportunity to experience the whole process of germination to harvest.

To help facilitate all aspects of the growing and harvesting process, the library makes available a variety of seed catalogs and a seed gathering kit that can be checked out too.

The Effingham County Master Gardeners group has been supportive of the library's efforts and assists in providing expertise when questions arise.

So whether you've purchased a ticket to attend our 3rd Annual Owl Creek Gazette "Journeys in Self-Reliance" Exposium or not, you can still bring your seeds to share and swap with others at the St. Lawrence Catholic Church Hall, 512 South Prairie Street in Greenville, IL between 4pm and 4:30pm on Sat. April 16th.

This is a great opportunity and one we are happy to incorporate into this year's event!
