The Romulus Public Library announced Monday that it launched a free seed library for residents in Huron Township and Romulus.
“Seeds are available to borrow with the intent of starting gardens all across Romulus and Huron Township,” said Kassi Gilbert, adult services librarian at the library.
“Borrowing seeds is easy; pick the seeds you want to take home and plant them,” she said.
The library will also send you home with instructions on how to care for your plants.
“The purpose of the Seed Library is to support and encourage residents of Romulus and Huron Township in experiencing the benefits of gardening their own flowers, fruits, and vegetables as well as harvesting seeds,” Gilbert said.
“This program was created with the goal that everyone from beginner to expert is encouraged to try growing something new this season.”
Gilbert said that the library has received a special donation of unique seeds from Gardens Across for advanced gardeners who would like to try growing something different in their gardens.
The seed library is available during regular library hours, which are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Questions about the program can be directed to 734-942-7589.
