Did you know that Lopez Island has another library? A seed library! The Lopez Community Land Trust Seed Library allows you to “borrow” seeds! How does this work? The basic is idea is that you plant the seeds, let some go to seed, then return some of these next generation seeds for others to borrow. Don’t worry. They don’t have fines if you don’t return seeds. Hurray for the collaborative borrowing power that all libraries support.
Ken Akopiantz, LCLT’s seed librarian, has published an updated Seed Library Catalog and Lopez’s own first Seed Exchange Catalog, available online at:
