PINE RIVER — The Pine River Seed Library is getting ready to open at the Pine River Public Library.

The committee will meet soon to set up seed library hours and a schedule for volunteers. This year’s seed order has arrived, so the group will package seeds for the 2023 growing season.

Those unable to be at the meeting who would like to volunteer may call Barb at 218-587-2326.


The seed library is housed at the Pine River Public Library. Anyone may join by completing a short membership form. Once the form is complete, the seeds are available to borrow at no charge.

Seeds may have been donated by local gardeners or purchased from companies that specialize in growing in northern climates.

The seed library encourages borrowers to save seed to return to the library in the fall and provides guidance on how to do so.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
