QUINCY, — The Quincy Public Library’s seed library program, designed to foster community engagement and promote sustainable gardening practices, will be available from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 1, in the large meeting room.

Learn how you can borrow seeds, connect with fellow gardeners to exchange tips and tricks, take a guided tour of the Seed Library binder and indulge in refreshments. The highlight of the event will be an address by Deborah Lee, a distinguished Master Gardener, herbalist and owner of Four Winds Farm. She will share her expertise on heirloom seeds, the importance of cultivating one’s food and the art of seed saving.

Participate in a personalized tutorial on navigating the seed library, ensuring you can easily find the plants that suit your preferences and check out seeds. Choose from a variety of seeds available at the library to take home and contribute to Quincy’s growing green community.

The seed library will be accessible during regular library hours starting Thursday. A seed swap is scheduled for Feb. 17. Visit quincylibrary.org for a calendar of events.
