US (MI): Bay College introduces seed libraryA new initiative at the Bay College Library will give members of the community a chance to grow vegetables, fruits, flowers, and more while saving money on seeds. The Bay College Seed Library officially opened for business after materials for the program arrived at the library earlier this month.
The seed library program allows people to “borrow” seeds from the Bay College Library.
“It’s similar to a book check-out,” Library Director Oscar DeLong said. He also noted that, as is the case for the Bay College Library in general, use of the seed library is not restricted to Bay students.
Once the seeds used by seed library participants have grown into new plants, participants will collect seeds from these plants and bring them back to the library.
A wide variety of seeds are available from the library.
“Mostly, they’re vegetables — there are some flowers in the mix, as well,” DeLong said. Fruit and vegetable seeds available through this program include beet, Brussels sprout, cabbage, carrot, cucumber, lettuce, pumpkin, watermelon, and tomato seeds. Several types of flower seeds, including seeds for black-eyed Susans, marigolds, sunflowers, daisies, and zinnias, are also available.
