Thanks to a neighbor's gift of a "Little Library," Gowen Gardens has the ability to share food plants with our neighbors.
Seeds and little sprouts of snack plants will be placed in the library for neighbors to take and plant in their gardens (container, raised bed, in ground, etc.)
Seeds need five basic things to grow:
Soil, Sunshine, Water, Patience, & Love.
Once your plant begins to produce food, enjoy it with your friends and family, and share any extra with neighbors.
While I ask that books not be placed in this "library", neighbors are encouraged to add your own extra plants, seeds, and food. (Book libraries can be found within a block in any direction of the plant library.)
If you or someone you know would like to garden, but is unsure of how to start, or if you have any questions, email me at GowenGardens@gmail.com.

Please note that as neighbors exchange plants, and non Gowen Gardens grown plants are added, Gowen Gardens cannot guarantee that they are organic or otherwise. Neighbors assume all risks of using the library, and planting plants from it. Please also note that the plants listed here are not guaranteed to be in the library. This is simply a resource for growing what you may have selected to grow. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Questions? Email Christina at GowenGardens@gmail.com.
