It's finally here! New Canaan Library invites you to come grow with us! We have started a seed lending library. The idea is simple—borrow seeds from our library (don't worry-- there won't be any fines), let some of the plants go to seed, and bring the next generation of seeds back to the library. Whenever the Library is open, gardeners can check out seeds for free.
Saving seeds saves money, creates tastier food, and keeps the vegetable genetic pool more diverse and healthy.
