 Tired of just saving seeds from the fruits – and vegetables – of your labour? So are we! For the upcoming season, the Ottawa Seed Library welcomes you to showcase your favourite plant varieties on your  Instagram page. As many of us will invest time and effort into our garden, we feel it is fitting to want to share our achievements with the seed saving community. To get started, we put together a guide outlining how to display the fruits of your efforts to the Ottawa Seed Library Community using Instagram.
