Rio Linda Recreation and Park District

The Seed Library 

Here’s an unusual item – Rio Linda has a seed library.  Members of the community are asked to collect seeds from whatever they grow and donate them to the seed library.  In exchange, they are allowed to choose whatever seeds they would like to try.  It’s all free. The long-term goal is to have a huge selection of seeds that work well in the Rio Linda climate.
