Haywood’s first ever seed lending library

Written by 

Learn about the new seed library of Waynesville at an open house from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, March 2, at the Haywood County Public Library in Waynesville.

This is how the seed library works: Gardeners “borrow” seeds, plant them and then harvest the seeds at the end of the growing season, and return seeds to the library for restocking. The seed library will be housed at the actual library — specifically in the old card catalog drawers once used to file book titles and authors, are being recycled and used to store the seeds.

The open house also will feature local food samples. The new seed library will be open for business on Monday, March 3. 828.356.2507.
