Across the country, public libraries are taking the initiative to lead their communities down a path of verdant biodiversity, planting veggies, fruit, flowers, and herbs that bring delight (not to mention delicious food and good exercise) to those who plant them, eat from them, and watch them grow. In 2011, Chillicothe Public Library began a season of gardening on our land that lasted about seven years. Though we no longer have a garden plot at this time, we still seek to support the exploration of sustainable living, healthy lifestyle, and food security.
