The Pine River Seed Library will reopen March 1 for anyone who would like to borrow seed for the 2022 growing season.

Seeds are free to all. Seed borrowers will be asked to complete a simple membership form and a seed check-out form, and are encouraged to save some seed at the end of the season for themselves and to return to the library.

Members who have borrowed seed previously will only need to update their check-out form.

The seed library is housed in the Pine River Public Library and will be open to seed borrowers from noon to 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays starting March 1.

Seed library volunteers will be available to assist borrowers with seed selection, to answer questions and to provide information about saving seed.


People who are unable to come during the listed hours are encouraged to call Barb at 218-587-2326 for an appointment.

Donated seeds may be delivered any time during public library hours by dropping them off at the seed library table. Seeds should be in an envelope or plastic bag and should be labeled with the type of seed, name of the variety, year harvested and grower’s name.

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.
