Little Seed Library

Participate in our newest venture for the community! In collaboration with Upbring School of Arts & Science, Mariposas is now sponsoring a Little Seed Library at our office location. It contains seeds and information about growing food for yourself and community. 

It works just like a Little Book Library-  take a pack, leave a pack system.  These “libraries”  exist to encourage food sharing and gardening in communities and families.
