Seed Library coming to RPL
Rodman Public Library is partnering with StarkFresh to bring a “Seed Library” to the community. Beginning on March 13, vegetable and flower seeds will be displayed in the library’s wooden card catalog located in the library’s front lobby. Patrons may browse through the catalog and take free seed packets of items they are interested in growing. The seed packets offered are the same ones seen in most retail stores with corn, beans, beets, radishes, watermelon, lettuce, cucumbers, cantaloupe, gourds, a few root vegetables such as turnips, and a wide variety of flowers. Mid-March planting will give patrons ample time to start their seeds indoors.
StarkFresh, located in Canton, has a mission to “help break the cycle of poverty by increasing people’s consumption of fresh, locally sourced, nutrient-dense, healthy and affordable foods through equal food access and educational opportunities for everyone."
