I don't know the people behind the Hudson Valley Seed Library, but I can tell already that I'm going to like them. Not only are they bringing back the lost art of seed saving, they're going about it in an aesthetically pleasing way! HVSL asked local artists to design some of their seed packs, and the results are fantastic. Inside these beautiful packs are locally grown seed. What that means to you is that the plants are perfectly adapted to the Hudson Valley, they were saved by your neighbors, you can produce heirloom varieties in your own garden, and you can return some seeds so that someone else can grow those varieties next year. That's what living in a growing community is all about!
