ROPL’s Seed Library provides flower and vegetable seeds to the community for free! Patrons can "check out" seeds by visiting our Seed Library nook, which is located by our north entrance. We ask that seeds are "returned" by harvesting seeds from a plant or two that you grow. Have seeds to donate? Drop them off anytime, but make sure they are labeled "FOR SEED LIBRARY."
Our Seed Library is an important library resource that helps to promote food independence, seed diversity, maintaining heritage varieties, and the saving of seeds that are adapted to the local climate and growing conditions. Seed libraries share the wonder of growing your own food or plants from seed! Seed saving and sharing is a money saving, sustainable practice that is hundreds of years old, connects us to the past as well as the earth, and is a great way to give back to the community. And it's fun! Questions? Call the Adult Services Desk at (248) 246-3727.
