The Community Seed Ark was originally established by the librarians with artist Aga Kowalska. With Elida Maiques as Bray Library’s Seed Librarian, she is curating a collection of open-pollinated, heritage seeds available for free to the public. Any library user from county Wicklow has access to an extensive seed list of vegetables, wildflowers and garden plants.
