Julie Robinson is the manager of the Ruiz branch of the Kansas City Public Library. Robinson is heading up a new seed library program that allows patrons to check out packets of flower, herb and vegetable seeds and, at the end of the growing season, return seeds collected from the plants they grew.
A kickoff event is 2 p.m. May 3 at the Ruiz branch, 2017 West Pennway. Star reporter Mike Hendricks and his wife, Roxie Hammill, authors of Mike & Roxies Vegetable Paradise, will talk about growing food in an urban setting. This conversation took place at the library.
How did you get the idea to start a seed library at a book library? Are you a gardener?
