Grow Gainesville Seed Library: Fall/Winter 2011

posted Sep 25, 2011, 6:16 PM by Melissa DeSa
Grow Gainesville, a project of Slow Food Gainesville will soon launch a community seed library! This is a physical place where seeds will be stored and saved for community use. Gardeners can donate their excess seed and surplus saved from the garden to the library and also "check out" seeds donated by other local gardeners. Over time this will create a viable local seed source for our region. Bulk purchases of locally appropriate seeds will also be made, making these seeds readily available to everyone at little to no cost. Stay tuned for more information. If you're super excited like we are can't wait to learn more or get involved, send us an email: If you're an avid gardener, join the amazing discussions on Facebook. We promise you'll learn something and make great connections.
