Seed Library launch

Monday, 6 December 2021.

Join us for afternoon tea as we launch our new Seed Library!

What is a Seed Library? It’s a place where you can borrow or drop in seeds to get your garden or someone else’s started.

Choose up to 3 packets of vegies, herbs or flowers to get your garden started or to add to your existing garden.

Enjoy watching your plants grow and when they go to seed, collect the seeds and drop some back into the library for others to enjoy.

Murray Valley Bearings & Hardware has kindly donated seeds to start our Seed Library and if you have seeds to spare, donations will be gratefully accepted.

Our Seed Library is FREE to use and we aim to make it self-sustaining through donations from the local community.

When: Monday, 6 December 2021 at 3pm
Where: Swan Hill Regional Library
