WESTFORD — A community seed library has returned to the J.V. Fletcher Library.

The program began in 2015 as an Eagle Project by Will O’Neal, a scout from Westford’s Troop 159. The program was created to promote local plant diversity and create accessible resources for local gardeners.

The project has since been maintained by the Westford Rotary Club, which continues to provide free seeds to gardeners throughout the year.

The program allows gardeners “borrow” from an assortment of vegetable, fruit or flower seeds to use throughout the year. The expectation, Westford Rotary says, is that gardeners will donate a number of seeds from their plants at the end of the growing season to ensure the sustainability of the program.

Westford Rotary has also included a number of envelopes to store excess seeds should a gardener only need a handful from an unopened packet.

The seed library is available on the ground floor of the J.V. Fletcher Library for residents to use.
