Seed Library Now Open

Help preserve heirloom plants and add variety to your garden. Meadville Public Library is now hosting a Seed Library. The idea began as a Senior Project for a Meadville teen. You can now “check out” seeds to plant. Once the plant grows, you save some of the seeds, dry them, and return them to the Seed Library. This makes sure the seeds we have to share stay viable while promoting biodiversity.
