Green Sun Seed Library

Did you know that there is group that is dedicated to community gardening and seed saving? The group is called Green Sun Seed Library. Members are mainly concerned with promoting sustainable gardening practices and the preservation of heirloom non GMO seeds. They hold a number of seed and plant swaps throughout the course of year. They also promote a wide range of sustainable gardening and farming practices.

Their Facebook group page is a wealth of information that keeps people in tune with the latest and greatest wholesome activities and resources pertaining to growing plants. They also promote lectures, provide germination charts, offer gardening and growing tips, feature films, and promote plant and seed sales such as the upcoming Capen Spring Plant and Seed Exchange (see Facebook event – Saturday, May 20). If you really get into it, you can join the group on Facebook, and even attend one of their upcoming meetings.
