Sharing the Seeds – Future Community Seed Library in the Works at Ojibwe Learning Center and Library

A community seed library is a public collection of seeds available for community members to “borrow” or grow out. Community seed libraries provide access to seeds for gardeners of all levels and the opportunity for community members to learn about growing plants and seed keeping.

Multiple Sault Tribe departments and community partners are currently in the process of establishing a community seed library at the Ojibwe Learning Center and Library in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. Departments involved include Sault Tribe’s Language and Culture and Community Health Departments as well as community partners such as Michigan State University’s Federally-Recognized Tribes Extension Program and individual community members. The group is inviting interested community members to join in the creation of this seed library! Gardeners, growers, and seed keepers of all levels of experience are welcome.

If you are interested in being involved in the creation of this community seed library or would just like to receive general updates, please visit Bit.ly/ShareTheSeeds to share your contact information.
