The Seed Library is growing...
Idea Exchange, Preston has been the host location for Idea Exchange's Seed Library cabinet for many years. In past seasons, the Seed Library has provided kits of seeds at other locations, including the One Seed, One Community selection.
This spring, access to seeds is expanding to include a Little Seed Library at each location to provide even more convenience and support our community gardeners.
Each Little Seed Library will include a selection of eight popular vegetables, four popular herbs, and four types of flowers, including native varieties that are crucial for bees, monarch butterflies, and other pollinators. Help the City of Cambridge support our Bee City goals by planting and growing these pollinator-friendly flowers.
From March to June, visit your local Idea Exchange location to browse and take what you need from the Little Seed Library. We will also gratefully accept seed donations at any time of year to keep our seed-sharing growing.
While you’re visiting, check out some of the books and other resources in our collection on gardening or borrow garden tools at our Preston location.
