Milton Grows Resources: Home

A gardening and sustainability resource collection


You will find here suggested books and more resources related to gardening, sustainability and a seed library started as part of the grant-funded Milton Grows Initiative (2022-2023) of the Milton Public Library.

Seed Library

A Seed Library is a collection of seeds that community members may "check out," take home and plant in their gardens. Seed packets (up to 5 packets per patron, please) are available during the spring and early summer for sign-out near the second floor Reference Desk. We are currently accepting seed donations.

We'd love pictures of your bounty grown from MPL seeds. Send to:


The Seed Library is supported by the generosity of the Friends of the Milton Public Library.
