Seed Library is Open For Business!

Seed Library Littleton (SLL), housed right here at Reuben Hoar Library and sponsored by Littleton Community Farm,

is a free resource for growing and saving seed. 

Simply find the vegetable you’d like to grow in the card catalog, sign it out, and get growing!

Growing information is located inside the seed envelopes. 

If you’d care to save seed from what you’ve grown from SLL, simply fill out the return form

(also in the seed packet) and drop it and your seed in an envelope in the basket below the SLL.  

 

 

When and Where?

Location: Littleton’s Reuben Hoar Library Couper Room
Class and demonstration led by Miqelle DeMeis, Rick Findlay and Judith Taylor

What in the world is Seed Library Littleton? We’re glad you asked! SLL is about free and sustainable food, community, and ensuring seed diversity. Whether you have never planted a seed before, or you are an experienced gardener, we’d love for you to join us for the season opening! We will start off with a talk about how the seed library works, have a hands-on seed starting demonstration, and end with a seed swap.

The seed swap is optional, but if you choose to participate, please bring your extra seeds in their original packaging, or in an envelope with seed type, date saved or bought, and where they were acquired (saved, Johnny’s, Seed Savers, etc.)

If you have heirloom seeds that you would like to contribute or wish to participate in the success of Seed Library Littleton, please contact Littleton Community Farm at boardlcf@gmail.com.
