Free tomatoes, anyone?A little dirt, a little digging and pretty soon you'll have some, courtesy of the Clark County Public Library.
AppalSeeds, a program created by library director Julie Maruskin in 2000, will kick off at 10 a.m. Saturday with a seed-starting workshop.
Each attendee will get three live heirloom tomato seedlings, some soil, and instructions on how to transplant them.
The presentation will focus on where the most common vegetables come from, and showcase older varieties that aren't typically found in produce aisles, but are still grown and made available through seed-save cooperatives.
"This year we did it so there's a lot more focus on the Appalachian garden as whole, its history and how to recreate and add to it," Maruskin said.
