LAWRENCE MEMORIAL LIBRARY
Bristol's gateway to a world of information
for all who delight in discovery through reading, watching, and listening.
~nurturing the intellectual and cultural life of our Bristol community~
Humans have been saving seeds for thousands of
years. Saving seeds allows us to grow plants that are from our community. It
allows us to grow seeds that are suited to our climate and resistant to
local diseases. Seed exchanges are sprouting up all over the country. Stay
local with seeds from our community!
Thanks to a generous contribution from High Mowing
Organic Seeds we have vegetable seeds that you can "borrow." The Lawrence
Memorial Library seed exchange gives library patrons access to free,
non-genetically modified seeds. Patrons can "borrow" up to 3 packets of
seeds from the library. To return the seeds in the fall, the gardener lets a
few of the plants go unharvested and collects the seeds from these plants,
returning them to the library. We will have a seed saving workshop to teach
you how later in the summer. If you have any seeds you have saved from last
year we can add them to our library this year.
