Thanks to NSG, we were able to set up our little seed/book library in the Comox Valley in May of 2022 (seeds Spring to Fall, books Fall to Spring).
Compared to our previous location, the library has seen less activity. We suspect it is because the library’s new location does not have a sidewalk. To meet new neighbours and draw more attention to the library, we set up a lemonade stand in Summer and a hot chocolate stand for Halloween. Since the library saw limited traffic in Summer, we topped up fellow seed libraries with any excess seed supply we had.
We will monitor the seed traffic. If this location continues to be less active, next year we will add less seeds and perhaps add craft kits (longer shelf life) 🙂
Despite being less busy, people who have used the seed library always leave with a smile.
