Seed Swap This Spring

The Sidney Library will be part of a county-wide Seed Swap program now through the end of May. Look for the old fashioned card catalog, which will be full of seed packets (flowers, vegetables, and herbs). You are welcome to take what you will use for your own garden.

In addition, if you have leftover seeds from 2014 or 2015, you can bring them in to share with others. It is a fun and free way to see what types of seeds are out there, and to add some variety to your garden. We hope you enjoy them!

To recognize Ms. Gatto’s hard work and the completion of this project, we invite kids to join us at the Sidney Library at 4pm on Thursday June 5th for a celebration.
