The 2nd annual Countywide Seed Swap is on at all Delaware County Public Libraries, now until June 1st.

Bring in your partially used seed packets and file them in the designated card catalogue drawer under the appropriate letter (B for Beans). Then find some seeds you might want to try (H for Heliotrope) and use one of our nifty envelopes to help yourself to the number of seeds appropriate for your garden.

It’s an excellent way to expand your garden without having to spend a fortune. To get the party started, Transition Catskills has donated heirloom vegetable seeds to each library.
