Terrebonne Parish School District to hold first-ever Special Needs Easter Egg HuntJanuary 14, 2024
TPL Explains How the Seed Library Works:
- The Terrebonne Parish Seed Library is a free seed project encouraging its community to feed itself wholesome food through education that cultivates community resilience and sharing. Humans have been saving seeds for many years. Some of that knowledge, however, has been over time, along with significant biodiversity.
- Select no more than 2 packets per person (we are working with donors, so please be respectful of this).
- Write your name in our “Seed Member Borrow Record.”
- Plant the seeds in your garden.
- Save the seeds from any of your vegetable plants.
- Bring us your saved seeds, and we will package them in the library for someone else to use.
- Ask a staff member for an envelope.
- Label the envelope with as much information about the seeds as you can. We can fill it out if you’d prefer.
- Write your name in our “Seed member Donation Record” and add as much information as you’d like next to your name.
- The Seed Library operates on the honor system. You become a member when you withdraw seeds to plant. We encourage all members to learn basic seed saving techniques. If you are unable to save your own seed, please donate prepackage seeds to keep our library stocked.
If you’re not still sure about starting your own garden, or when or what to plant, TPL has an extensive collection of books to get you started!
