Where Can I Lend Seeds From? Duluth Public Library Announces Innovative Gardening Approach

Source: AnthonyLibrarian via flickr

It’s probably not a new idea, but it surely seems novel in the 2010′s.  The Duluth Public Library has announced a new seed lending program – to go along with the other materials that you can check out.

So how does it work?

Starting in the spring of 2014, patrons will be able to check out packets of bean, pea, pepper, and tomato seeds;  The Duluth Library will also have packets of the Vegetable of the Year – which has yet to be announced.  Lenders will take the seeds, plant them, and then at the end of the growing season – harvest seeds from the best producing plant to give back to the library.

The main thrust of the program is to increase knowledge and consumption of locally-grown and adapted produce.  It’s also an excellent way to growing the seed stock.
