Coming to Menlo Park in 2020: a “green” new resource for the community. Menlo Park Library plans to establish seed lending libraries at the Main Library and Belle Haven Branch this spring. The Menlo Park Seed Lending Library will operate as a community seed exchange in which borrowers will be able to “check out” a wide variety of vegetable and flower seeds to plant in their gardens for home use.
The Menlo Park Seed Lending Library will provide access to heritage seeds, gardening workshops, education and resources to encourage residents to grow food and foster community resilience, self-reliance, and a culture of sharing.
The Menlo Park Seed Lending Library is a project of the City of Menlo Park with support from Menlo Park Library Foundation. Anticipated opening in spring 2020.
