An arts nonprofit is focusing on local artists and sense of place with its summer workshop series. The Mill Paper and Book Arts Center has put together a series of three classes with the theme Locally Grown.
Mill co-director Debbie Jircik says the goal of the series is to bring master teachers to the Northwoods to share their knowledge of art processes.
Gardeners will be swapping seeds next week in Eagle River. The Seed to Seed Edible Garden Project and Vilas County Master Gardeners are hosting the fourth annual exchange of vegetable and flower seeds.
Debbie Jircik is founder of Seed to Seed. She says seed saving is the process of letting plants flower and go to seed at the end of the season, and saving those seeds for next year’s planting.
