Seed Lending & Gardening
Seed libraries are a free urban seed project.
They are committed to increasing the capacity of our community to feed itself wholesome food. OPL seed libraries foster community resilience, self-reliance, and a culture of sharing.
Anyone is welcome to come in and check out seeds.
You don't need a library card.
We ask that you let some plants go to seed after planting them and return some of these next generation seeds for others to borrow.
