I read this interesting item online, No Late Fees For Seed Lending.
The Richmond Grows Seed Lending Library, near Berkley in California celebrated its one-year recently and has nearly 400 users.
When you visit the library to check out a book, you can leave with some basil, butterfly weed, or sweet pea seeds in your pocket. Seed-lending programs, operating out of public libraries, are taking root.
The concept is simple: Seed libraries allow patrons to “check out” seeds and grow them on their own land. In exchange, the gardener or farmer is asked to donate seeds to the library at harvest time. These will be used by fellow library-goers in the next growing season. “Unlike a seed bank, the libraries are living collections that change every time a gardener returns seeds,” Organic Gardening writes.
I have plenty seeds of tulsi and papaya, anyone who wants it can write to me.
