Free pumpkin seeds available from WVU Extension

Free pumpkin seeds are now available at more than 70 local libraries throughout West Virginia, thanks to the Grow This: West Virginia Garden Challenge from the WVU Extension Family Nutrition Program

“Grow This is always looking for ways to make gardening more accessible to the public, so using libraries as pick-up locations for our pumpkin seeds made perfect sense,” said Kristin McCartney, Extension specialist and SNAP-Ed coordinator with the WVU Extension Family Nutrition Program. “We are excited so many libraries volunteered to help, and hope Grow This participants take advantage of other programming they offer when picking up their seeds.”
