In 2013, the North Fork Seed Library was given the People’s Choice Grant Award and received a small grant from The North Fork Heart and Soul project, an organization dedicated to growing our local community. Numerous seed companies and community members generously donated hundreds of seeds to start the project. Then, in March 2017, Alpine Bank generously sponsored the seed library with the funds needed to expand the program to the whole county, thus becoming the Delta County Seed Library. Dedicated volunteers and staff continue to work hard to sort, package, and label the seeds so you can have a rewarding gardening experience!
Thanks to everyone who has helped with this project, including sponsors, donors, and volunteers!
