Seed libraries encourage a greener community


The Pierce County Library System is helping to encourage a greener community by introducing new seed libraries at select locations throughout the county.

A seed library allows a community member to borrow seeds, grow them and harvest new seeds from mature plants to return to a participating library. Flower, herb and vegetable seeds welcomed. Whether a novice or a Master Gardener, this passive program sows more than seeds. It creates connection and nurturing growth in every sprouted plant.
