Seed Swap 2017

The Sidney Library is excited to be part of the county-wide Seed Swap program again this year. Look for the small wooden card catalog near our main desk.

We have a small variety of seeds to start off the program. Bring in your old seeds (from 2016) or leftovers from this spring’s planting. Flower, herb, and vegetable seeds are all welcome.

This program will run through the end of May. See what’s here, and help yourself to a few seeds for your own garden.
