Once the growing season is over, patrons are encouraged to save the seeds and bring them back to the library for distribution to other gardeners.


Master Gardeners and local author Ben Cohen will be on hand to talk with patrons about growing and saving seeds. So, whether you are a beginner or seasoned grower we’re sure you’ll be excited about this new program!
