Getting Ready to Grow — Free Seeds at OPL
Seeds are available to all interested gardeners during regular library hours. The library is simple to use; sign up for a membership, choose your seeds, take them home and plant! At the end of your growing season, if you harvest seeds, bring some back to the library to share for next year's planting season.
The Orange Seed Lending Library has two locations — one is on the 2nd floor of the Orange Public Library & History Center, and the second is located in the El Modena Branch Library.
