A seed lending library is a free exchange designed to promote health, local food and a stronger community. Here’s how it works: check out a package of seeds for free at the library, plant them and let some grow to maturity. Then harvest the next generation of seeds and feel free to return some to the library so others can check them out next growing season! Visit this page for more information.
Will resume again in the Fall/Winter of 2019
Our community is remarkably well traveled and this program allows for the sharing of travel advice, stories and photographs. If you’re interested in presenting a travelogue please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
