The Missoula Public Library has enjoyed a partnership with the Five Valleys Seed Library (FVSL) and looks forward to the continued growth of the seed library.

At the end of March, FVSL will be gathering at the Garden City Harvest's River Road Community Garden. Local seed saving educator, Dave Victor, will discuss beginning the seed saving journey and herbalist Elaine Sheff will share her knowledge of 'medicinal' weeds, with our very own Bill McDorman keynoting this event. FSVL will have plenty of seeds to give away and encourages the community to bring seeds to share at the event.
