From Roots to Bloom: The Growth of The Seed Library Movement

While seed exchanges are nothing new, seed libraries have gone from practically non-existent to a rapidly expanding forum for exchange within the decade.  While seeds and books have much in common, both holding within them an invaluable amount of information, the founder of Hudson Valley Seed Library argues that it is community that truly is the foundation of both seed and book libraries. He explains “seed libraries are asking consumers to become cooperative producers. They are asking gardeners to take more responsibility for where their seeds come from and actively help create local seed independence.”
