New Seed Library is Putting Down Roots


East Palo Alto seed library.The Brisbane Library will have a new seed library available to the public by the end of June. How a seed library basically works is that you can take different kinds of seeds available from the library and put each kind of seed in a labeled packet. Plant the seeds in your garden at home and grow your food. When the vegetables or plants have been harvested, bring back seeds from the strongest and best-looking parts of your crops to replenish the seed library.

Benefits of using a seed library to grow your own food include saving money on gardening and groceries and having healthy, delicious food available in your own backyard—or wherever your gardening space may be.
