Seed Library is Now Open
We’re super excited to be home to Chequamegon Bay’s newest seed library. The seed library is a free resource where community members can borrow seeds, grow them, and then return saved seeds at the end of the season. You’ll find the seed library at the front of the store in a green filing cabinet, by the registers.
Join us for an open house on Saturday, March 28, 2015 from 1 to 2 p.m. at the Co-op, 700 Main Street West in Ashland, Wis. There will be an explanation of seed library use, a ribbon cutting, and refreshments. The open house will be followed by a seed saving workshop in the Co-op’s Community Room at 2 p.m.
Local seed libraries are coordinated by the Seed Savers Alliance with support from the Alliance for Sustainability. The Seed Savers Alliance is a collective of seed lending libraries throughout Northern Wisconsin. The Alliance for Sustainability is a nonprofit organization based in Ashland, Wis. that works with local governments, businesses, organizations, schools and residents to promote sustainability through education, training, and direct action.
