One Seed, One State

The Westland Seed Library is participating in the One Seed, One State initiative, promoting the cultivation of nutritious food and the saving of seeds by collectively growing one variety of seed. This year's seed is the Boston pickling cucumber!

Stop by the library for your packet of seeds and information on cultivating this plant! These are available as a "Bonus Borrow" and will not count against our normal 5-packet seed borrowing limit. Supplies are limited, so please limit to 1 packet per family.

Happy gardening!

Westland Seed Library

The Westland Seed Library is now open! Our seed library is a collection of seeds that are freely available to community members. You may borrow seeds to take home, grow, and enjoy, with the intention of saving seeds at the end of the growing season to return to the seed library for others to borrow next season. Stop by the library to check it out!
