Start a Seed Lending Library.
There are at least 60 seed lending libraries in 23 states, as of 2013. It is simple, and free. If you have seeds, you can grow your own healthy food and feed yourself. The basic is idea
is that you plant heirloom seeds. Let some of the plants go to seed and harvest those seeds to plant the following season. Home gardeners can save seeds from their tomatoes, lettuce, beans, peas and peppers plants. Then, return some of these saved seeds to the library for others to borrow the next season, for free. Inquire about placing a seed lending library
in our public libraries. The seeds can be stored inside the drawers of an old-fashioned library card catalog. Find master gardeners
to teach free classes on organic gardening and seed saving. Of course, you can also borrow books from the public library on these topics. http://www.richmondgrowsseeds.org/ “Seed Libraries Help Future Crops,” Diana Alvear, NBC Nightly News, by Brian Williams, March 22, 2013
