Welcome to the LIBERTY GARDENS website!

 

We are on the verge of losing, in one generation, much of the agricultural diversity it took mankind 10,000 years to create.  When a gardener plants his own open-pollinated seeds, he is passing onthe ageless, priceless gift bestowed upon him.




-Vicki Nowicki, founder

The new Seed-Lending Library opened on April 12, 2014.  It is located in

Downers Grove, Illinois at the Downers Grove Historical Museum on Maple Avenue.  As it happens, it is surrounded by 4 acres of land.  We kicked it off with a rousing 100 members who completed the first level of training for saving seeds. The summer has flown by and we are already looking at October!  On October 3rd at 3 pm and again on November 15th at 1:30 pm we are going to have some FUN!  We are going to do some SEED SWAPPING!  This will be open to the public if they call 630-963-1300.
