Free Seeds at Your Neighborhood Library

January 15, 2019 - 11:30am -- jfuentes

It might be the depths of winter right now but green-fingered gardeners everywhere are already planning their spring planting. PCL can help, thanks to our continued partnership with a free seed program managed by the University of Rhode Island.

Our Rochambeau, South Providence, Wanskuck and Washington Park locations will be offering free seed exchanges in 2019. The program is made possible annually through the generous donation of seeds by Ocean State Job Lot, and the efforts of the University of Rhode Island Master Gardener Program volunteers.
