Jenkintown Library Community Seed Exchange is now offering two free seed packets to any Montgomery County resident. Additional seed packets can be taken with a one to one exchange. For example: you bring in two seed packets. You may exchange one to one for the two seed packets and take an additional two packets for free. So the total would be four packets. Thank you Primex Garden Center in Glenside for donating seed packets to support this program.
If you have extra starter plants for the garden you would like to give away for free, please feel free to bring them in to the library.
