Gardening Resources @ the Library

seed library

Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library (3rd floor)

The Seed Library functions as a free exchange of seed packets for the Memphis community and is located on the 3rd floor of Central Library. A former card catalog now houses seeds of all kinds, including vegetables, flowers, and herbs. Take what you need, and after your harvest (if possible), donate seeds from your yield.
