Are you ready to get growing again? Your Nashville Public Library Seed Exchange team is back after a brief winter hiatus, and invites you to borrow seeds for your spring, summer, and fall gardens. If you're not growing herbs, let Herb Society of Nashville's Todd Breyer inspire you! Breyer kindly shared stories from his career as a landscape architect and his life-long journey as a gardener.

NPL is thrilled to kick off the fifth year of Seed Exchange. Visit one of our fifteen seed exchange locations and borrow all sorts of seed varieties to grow in early spring, summer, or fall. While serving as "seed librarian" at the Main Library, I've had the incredible honor of getting to know Davidson County Master Gardener Joan Clayton-Davis, who is always happy to share her wealth of gardening knowledge and love of growing vegetables. "Fresh tomato sandwiches cannot be described with mortal words" Joan declares, and I most heartily agree! I reached out to Joan with a few garden-related questions and she kindly responded.
