LibraryFarm: Check out a Garden Plot With Your Books

by Adele Peters

February 17, 2013

Half of the LibraryFarm lot is reserved as a public plot, where anyone can garden without commitment. If someone wants to practice planting or weeding, they can come anytime, and take home a small portion of the harvest. The rest of the produce is donated to local food shelters. 

Not every library has access to land, but for those that do, this is an excellent idea to steal.
