Welcome to the Seed Sowing Center!

This Center will house a Seed Library, which will include supplies like free seeds for vegetables and flowers, as well as a place to check out gardening tools (coming soon!) and resources. The purpose of this new Seed Sowing Center is to help support sustainability in our community by supplying library cardholders with resources that they can use in their gardens.

We’d love to see what you grow!
