Barnstable Public Library Loans Seeds to Gardeners

Credit Elspeth Hay

There's a new card catalog at the Sturgis Public Library in Barnstable. But instead of books, it lends seeds! Gardeners in turn grow the plants, save their seed, and bring some back to the library at the end of the season. This week on the Local Food Report, Elspeth Hay learns how the program works, and how to save bean seeds from start to finish. You can learn more about some of the varieties the program offers on Elspeth's blog, Diary of a Locavore.
