Our project:

To create a free, public, seed library at Veterans Park Recreational Center in Lehigh Acres as a part of our community service project.  

If you will drive here to pick up, we will provide you with seeds.

  • 3 x 3, zip bags for seed packets, preferably 6 mil thick

Projected outcomes and measurable impact:

  • Veterans Park Recreational Center, located in Lehigh Acres, will have a well-stocked, easy-to-access source for appropriate vegetable seeds to grow in SW Florida backyard gardens
  • Following the completion of a seed saving lesson, each seed library patron will be able to check out up to 10 packets of seeds per year without a fee
  • 4-H youth will learn how to sort bulk seeds and repack into patron-sized packets
  • 4-H youth will learn about seed-saving
  • 4-H youth will help with workshops, events, and to assist patrons with the seed lending process
  • 4-H youth will document the number of participants together with their successes and/or failures using the Seed Lending Library
