There’s nothing like the miracle of seeing new shoots break through the soil each Spring! Get growing in your garden with free vegetable and flower seeds at the Main Library. Beginning April 1, select what you want to plant from our seed bank in-person at the Library or by completing the convenient form. Enjoy gardening alone or with the whole family. If you’ve got kids, it’s also a cool science lesson!
This is the 10th anniversary of the seed bank, supplied by the Ohio State University Extension and Stark County Master Gardeners.
