Seed Lending Library


seed drawerWe still have lots of great seed inventory that can be taken. New seeds are in stock!  We are accepting your harvested seeds  – please fill out the Seed-Library-Donation-Form– thanks.

Wheeler Library’s Seed Lending Project welcomes new and experienced gardeners to share gardening knowledge, check out our interesting stock of garden seed, and to contribute seeds that they may have saved that have been successful locally.  Our speaker in March and April, Bill Paradis, has 30 years of experience growing vegetables for discriminating chefs, and works locally with small growers and community gardens.  Please call Wheeler  Library with any questions. The seed library is open whenever the library is open, AND opens at 6:30 on the nights we have a gardening program scheduled.

Program on Climate Change Communication by Jenn Marlon, Wednesday, March 29th at 7pm.


Wednesday, April 5th at 7pm.   Getting outside into the garden – Bill Paradis presents information on how to plan succession plantings, how to know when to transplant, start seeds outdoors, and get working in the soil.



Shared Solar: Solar for the rest of us. Wednesday, April 12 at 7 pm. Join us for a program with David Desiderato from the CT Fund for the Environment.

Solar and other renewables are key to ending our dependence on fossil fuels and these clean energy resources are now cost-competitive with conventional ways of generating electricity. However, 4 out 5 Connecticut residents can’t install solar panels because they live in a condo, rent, or have too much shade. Shared Solar allows anyone with an electric bill to buy a portion of a larger solar array. Savings are automatically credited on electric bills. Shared Solar allows everyone to benefit from solar. Plan to attend and find out more!

Please call Wheeler Library at 860 535 0383 with any questions about the program.
