Why a seed library?
Over the past several years at UNC Asheville, hundreds of pollinator-friendly native plants have been planted, beginning beekeeping classes and workshops have been offered, beehives have been installed and maintained, and a bee hotel has been constructed. As part of its multi-dimensional commitment to sustainability, UNC Asheville is committed to maintaining educational, demonstration pollinator meadows and gardens in highly visible locations throughout the campus, including along the portions of the City’s greenways that the University maintains along Reed Creek and Glenn’s Creek Greenways. Ramsey Library is joining in this effort by collecting, purchasing and/or receiving donated seeds and offering them to the community to plant to create more pollinator habitats.
Ramsey Seed Library continues to support is the effort towards monarch conservation. https://www.fws.gov/savethemonarch/
