When visiting the Pollinator Garden and the Paterson Garden you will find a Little Seed Library at each site. The seeds are free for the taking, and we also encourage you to learn how to collect and save seeds so that you can perhaps give seeds one day. See below for a few excellent links to information about seeds, from planting to saving.

Coming Soon…Little Gardening Book and Seed library

Enjoy our gardening books, free for the taking, or bring some of your own to donate to other gardeners. The seed container is also for taking or giving. For more information, please see the links below.
