Local libraries are a great place to borrow books about gardening – but starting this year, Ottawa residents can also borrow the seeds to grow the garden.

Last spring, the Ottawa Public Library partnered with Just Food to create the city’s first “seed library” for gardeners and people who want to learn more about growing food.

“People take the seeds out of the library during workshops,” explained Jordan Bouchard, a Just Food co-ordinator and organizer of the program.
