The UMass Amherst Libraries will host an open house for the new Mass Aggie Seed Library on Thursday, April 18, 1-4 p.m. in the Science and Engineering Library, Lederle GRC Lowrise. The event is open to the campus and local community.
The seed library, now open for seed borrowing and donation, houses a collection focusing on organic, open-pollinated and heirloom vegetable and flower seeds as well as a collection of books to educate the community about seed saving. Additionally, seed-saving tools will soon be available for loan to encourage and support seed-saving efforts.
The Seed Library is made possible through a generous grant from the UMass Amherst Sustainability, Innovation & Engagement Fund (SIEF).
