Did you know El Paso has a free seed library for your kids to "check out" seeds to grow at home? Spring has sprung in the Sun City and many El Pasoans are starting to plant their backyard gardens. This is a great time to teach your kids about planting their own vegetables and flowers and how they can reap the benefits of their hard work.
If the idea of your kids having their own garden seems intriguing, the El Paso Seed Library is the place to go. The Sow.Grow.ReapEat Program from the El Paso Public Library has a collection of non-genetically modified vegetables, herbs, fruit, and flower seeds for you to choose from. All the program asks is once your plant and grow your garden, you harvest some seeds and donate them back to the El Paso Public Library to share with the community.
To participate in the program, simply call your local library branch and see what seeds they currently have available. Give your library card number and then you can pick up your seeds through their curbside pickup program. The seeds come with instructions on how to plant and care for your plants as they grow and there is a Sow.Grow.ReapEat blog to give you tips and helpful hints.
