Channel your inner botanist this Earth Week by planting seeds and making observations as they grow! Pick up a complementary packet of native wildflower or vegetable seeds (spinach, mixed lettuce, or beets) and compostable starter pots and get your garden started. Seeds will be available on a first come, first serve basis until they are gone starting Monday, April 19th in honor of Earth Week at the Vail Public Library during regular operating hours from 11 am – 6 pm daily. The Town of Vail Seed Exchange is brought to you by the Environmental Sustainability Department and the Vail Public Library in conjunction with the One Book, One Valley and the NEA Big Read programs. Get inspired by reading “Lab Girl” by Hope Jahren, which is this year’s selection for One Book, One Valley and follows a female researcher through her lifelong journey in the field of botany. Please share the love and limit two packets per person.
Whether seeking to attract pollinators and smiles or growing healthy greens all summer long, grab a packet of seeds to take home and plant.
