How to Save a Public Library: Make it a Seed Bank

Here's a truly unique way to influence others to garden.

In Basalt Colorado, the public library is lending books...and seeds.

A library card will get you a pack of seeds.  Once those seeds are planted, and the fruits and vegetables have grown, the biggest and best seeds will be harvested and returned to the library to be shared with others.

The seed packets have become a novelty among classic books, CDs and DVDs and residents enjoy the entire process!!
