• Announcing a New Seed Library at APL!

    The role of the community seed library will be to help foster the sharing of seeds. We’ll have a collection of seeds that you can borrow to plant and grow your own food, herbs and flowers at home. After your plants mature and “go to seed,” you save the seeds and return them to the library so they can be shared with others. Stop by and learn about the benefits of seed sharing!
