Seeds in Local Libraries!

posted Aug 7, 2015, 12:04 PM by Carlie Sanford
This year 145 seeds packs were distributed through the Roberts Creek Library and 32 people in Sechelt took out 95 packs of seeds from the Sechelt Public Library. There are plans for a possible seed library as well in Gibsons, help would be needed.  These programs are in their sprouting stage.  For now, it is great that people are excited to try using local, heirloom  seeds and hopefully with time will learn how save and share them.
In conjunction with One Straw, Kym Chi and all the volunteers who helped plant the Oceanside Gardens (including  a brother and sister from Kenya!)  we will have calendula, Cherokee Trail of Tear Beans, Sunflowers and a very deep red, merlot lettuce that took the heat really well for borrowing from the libraries next year.
