Seed time at library



The Chatham-Kent Public Library’s successful seed program is back for another season.

Aspiring gardeners are able to “borrow” seeds from all 11 library branches.

Last year, a total of more than 6,200 seed packets – including vegetable, herb and flower seeds – were distributed.

This year, CKPL hopes to hand out 8,000 packets.

The initiative allows area residents to grow healthy gardens, enabling access to affordable food while creating beautiful spaces.

Those who take part are encouraged to return seeds back to the library at the end of the growing season.

All libraries are currently accepting seed donations of any variety. Those who donate are asked to fill out a donation form of the seed’s name, variety and growing information.
