Students must meet specific requirements and submit a short essay. To learn more about the application, visit www.cuwest.org/scholarship. Applications opened on January 1, 2021, and will close on March 31, 2021. Scholarship recipients will be announced on May 3, 2021.

Prescott Seed Library
Mar 1 all-day
Prescott Seed Library

Never have thoughts of spring been so welcome. Warmth, light, air, GREEN! The season is just around the corner and Prescott Public Library and Prescott Farmers Market are excited to announce the opening of the Prescott Seed Library in March of 2021.

Beginning Monday, March 1, library users will be able to “check out” seed packets with their library card. 25 varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers will be available in this first season of the Seed Library. While a library card is required to check out the seeds, they will be yours to keep, plant, nurture, and maybe…harvest and donate back to the Seed Library. Prescott Farmers Market Executive Director Kathleen Yetman and Janet Wilson, owner of Prescott Gardener, collaborated with librarians Ruthie Hewitt and Martha Baden to create this opportunity for library users and garden lovers.

Yetman says that Prescott Farmers Market has offered an informal seed exchange on a quarterly basis since 2017, but partnering with the library broadens the reach of the program. “Providing free seeds to the public cultivates a healthy community and increases access to fruits and vegetables. Prescott Farmers Market is thrilled to be able to collaborate with Prescott Public Library to ensure that everyone has the seeds and resources to grow their own food.”

The library plans to host programs that feature local growers who can share their expertise and encourage novice gardeners. Prescott Seed Library will kick off this series on Saturday, February 27 at 3 pm with “How to Start a Vegetable Garden” presented by Janet Wilson.  The program, which will feature a live Q and A session, will be offered through Zoom and registration is required. Visit the online events calendar at http://prescottlibrary.evanced.info/signup/calendar to register or call 928.777.1500.

The Seed Library will be located on the 2nd floor of the library in a 60-drawer card catalog, echoing the library’s past. Patrons will also find a new collection of gardening books alongside the seeds.

Wilson and Yetman had fun selecting the seeds and purchased them for this joint venture with funds raised through past seed exchanges and individual donations. “We chose open-pollinated varieties that will do well in our region, and can be started in spring both inside and direct sown outside. As we approach our last frost date in mid-May, we will add another round of seeds to the library with varieties that should be planted after any chances of frost have passed,” said Wilson. Packets, promotional materials, and books are funded through the Friends of the Prescott Public Library and library funds.

Speaking from a library perspective, Hewitt said “seed libraries have been a fixture in public libraries for many years and we are so excited to get our own here in Prescott! It will be a great addition to our Library of Things collection which includes hiking backpacks, Wi-Fi hotspots and iPad minis. Our Library of Things offers the community more ways to connect with each other and the natural world.”

Prescott is an amazing community, with abundant expertise and passion about growing. This collaboration between Prescott Farmers Market and Prescott Public Library is a wonderful, “organic” way to share that knowledge, passion, and …..seeds!

Prescott Public Library brings you the discovery of ideas, the joy of reading and the power of information.  Check the library’s online events calendar at www.prescottlibrary.info, or call 928.777.1526 for more information.
