CKPL Grows Seed Library to Launch with Spring

CKPL Grows Seed Library to Launch with Spring

 Chatham-Kent Public Library is happy to announce that the Seed Library is returning! Chatham-Kent residents can “borrow” seeds from all 11 CKPL locations: Chatham, Blenheim, Bothwell, Dresden, Highgate, Merlin, Ridgetown, Thamesville, Tilbury, Wallaceburg and Wheatley branches. Wheatley’s seeds will be available at the Wheatley Depot, located at the Village Resource Centre in Wheatley.

CKPL Grows Seed Library will launch March 21, 2022 and will offer a variety of vegetable, herb and flower seeds at each location. Last year over 6,200 seed packages were distributed across Chatham-Kent! CKPL’s goal this Spring is to distribute over 8,000 packages of seed to CK residents.

CKPL Grows Seed Library provides an opportunity for residents of Chatham-Kent to grow healthy gardens, have access to affordable food, and create beautiful spaces in their own backyards and local communities. Chatham-Kent Public Library members can borrow seeds for free, save the seeds they grow, and return some of those seeds back to the library at the end of the growing season.

Chatham-Kent Public Library is currently accepting seed donations of any variety at all locations. Residents are asked to fill out a donation form of the seed name, variety, and information on how to grow.
