As they say, April showers bring May flowers and April is right around the corner! It's time to get back in the garden and start planting those seeds. The Eagle Public Library is providing you with some as part of their Spring Seed Collection.

It's actually a pretty cool concept! Stop by the Eagle Public Library to pick up and take home a cup of seeds. Plant those seeds and then watch them grow! The next step is very important as the library encourages you to harvest some seeds, keep some for yourself, and donate some back to the library. Bringing seeds back to the library after harvest ensures the program continuing in the future. These are generations of seeds being planted!

The seeds are free for the community. There will be a table with seeds outside of the library at these times:

Sunday: 1 pm-5 pm
Monday: 9 am-8 pm
Tuesday: 9 am-8 pm
Wednesday: 9 am-8 pm
Thursday: 9 am-8 pm
Friday: 9 am-6 pm
Saturday: 9 am-5 pm

If you are in need of compost for your seeds, the city of Eagle also has you covered there too. You can get compost for free from March 22-26 at a new compost pop-up event thanks to Republic Services. Compost will be available while supplies last. The 20-yard compost dumpsters will be located at the West Eagle Park and Ride (1890 W State St), and the center parking lot at the Ada/Eagle Bike Park (near the corner of N Horseshoe Bend Road and E Greenbrook Street). Make sure to bring your own buckets and shovels as this is a self-service program.
