The Seed Library, housed on the second floor of the library, is open to all gardeners for the 2023 season. A wide variety of vegetable, herb, and flower seeds can be “checked out” for free. Browse the inventory here. Be sure to keep track of the seeds you take in the green Membership Binder next to the Seed Library. Gardeners are invited, but not required, to donate seeds that they have saved from their gardens or leftover seed packets back to the Seed Library. Come browse and choose what you will grow this year!
Be sure to check out the collection of garden tools in the Library of Things on the second floor. Patrons may check out a shovel, watering can, trowel, rake, bucket, or pruners.
On February 8th, there will be a Seed Swap from 5:00-6:00 pm followed by a discussion and photo presentation from 6 to 7 pm with Carol McGranaghan who will share how she practices traditional Abenaki ways to gather, honor, and respect plants both garden and wild. Bring your excess seeds and seedlings to be exchanged with local gardeners, check out our garden tools, and be inspired by fellow gardeners and our speaker.
Finally, keep your eye on our Events page for upcoming plant and garden related programs.
