Seed Lending Library

A number of local public libraries are carrying packets of seeds that are available to anyone in the area. We encourage you to plant the seeds, and once you have harvested, you save seeds from a few of the vegetables to give back to the library! We encourage you to use organic or sustainable practices if you plan to save the seeds for next year. Instructions for saving seeds are available at participating libraries.

Beginner Gardening Classes

In 2018, we started a free monthly Beginner Gardening class at the Otis Library in Norwich. Each class focused on a topic: Container Gardening; Raised Bed Gardening; Pest, Diseases and Harvesting; and Extending the Season and Putting the Garden to Bed. We hope to expand these classes to other libraries in Eastern CT.
