Farmington Minnesota Library,

It might not be quite time to start the garden but the snow won’t be around forever, there’s dirt under there somewhere!  Do you know of other places in MN that offer free seed libraries?  We would love to let our readers know if this is a common thing!

    Fun! Thanks for putting this up! I’m one of the master gardeners that presented this project to the library. It has been a great success so far and we have over 100 seed varieties now!!
