WVU and the Charles Town Library want you to grow

They are places where you grow food, or the flowers that decorate your home, or just hide away when the world’s noise becomes, well, too noisy.

A simple garden has been many things to many people through the ages and every last one of them begins with a simple seed. Now, here at the Charles Town Library, you can begin your own or share the garden you have already started.

Emily Morrow, of the West Virginia University Extension Service in Jefferson County has created a Seed Library where you can find free seeds or bring seeds for others. It is located at the circulation desk of the library, here at 200 E. Washington St.

Also, as you continue your garden-based adventure, be sure to explore the hundreds of books about gardening here at the library. We have an extensive collection of non-fiction, fiction and children’s books about gardens, From The Grumpy Gardener : an A to Z guide from the galaxy’s most irritable green thumb (2014) by Steve Bender, found in the non-fiction section at 655 BEN, to Good night, Garden gnome (2001) by Jamichael Henterly, found in the Juvenile Fiction at JP H.
