Elise Carey, library coordinator at St. Clare Library, Little Falls, stated, “The purpose for our seed library is to provide an alternative to genetically modified seeds, increase biodiversity and plant resilience. It also encourages food literacy and education, increases knowledge of gardening and horticulture, helps with sustainability and promotes healthy living and eating.”
If someone wants to contribute seeds from the garden, or perhaps some from a family’s heritage, Carey will be delighted to receive them. The only seeds not accepted will be hybrid seeds which change in composition after the first year’s growth. Stop by and peruse the varieties of flowers and vegetable seeds now available and get them started for planting in your garden this spring.
