Growing a good idea: McGill Seed Library helps would-be gardners

News

An unconventional library at McGill is allowing students and faculty to borrow seeds.

Reading books might help you grow ideas, but McGill’s [Macdonald] Library is giving out something that sprouts way more literally. The library is offering 130 varieties of seeds, free of charge, as part of a new program.

“We’re providing seeds that are more rare, more unusual, and ones that are adapted specifically for our climate,” said librarian Dana Ingalls.
