Library Offers Seeds To Check Out And Return

If you check out tomato seeds from the Kansas City Public Library, you'll have to pull new seeds out from the tomatoes you harvest and return them at the end of the season.

There’s a new resource in town for Kansas City gardeners: a seed library. Starting this spring at the Ruiz branch of the Kansas City Public Library, anyone with a library card can check out seeds for typical garden plants, from cilantro to tomatoes. At the end of the season, patrons return the seeds they harvest from the plants they grow.

 On Thursday's Central Standard, host Gina Kaufmann speaks with branch manager Julie Robinson about the new seed library and how it's organized. The launch of the seed library at the Ruiz branch of the Kansas City Public Library is May 3 at 2 p.m. Guest:

  • Julie Robinson, manager of the Ruiz branch of the Kansas City Public Library
