What is a seed library? 🌱
A seed library works much like a traditional library– but not quite. People from the local community “borrow” seeds from the Seed Library at planting time. At the end of the growing season, they save seeds from the plants and return a portion of the seeds to the library.
Organic seeds (where no pesticides have been used) will be stored in labelled glass jars, alongside growing and seed saving information. There are a variety of seeds, from flowers, to herbs, fruits and vegetables.
Bristol’s first Seed Library is about to launch at Bishopston Library on Gloucester Road. The launch event is on 22nd March from 7-9pm.
H&DAA Members are invited to come and enjoy some music and light refreshments and see the library in action.
