Learn how to harvest seeds at New Smyrna Beach Regional Public Library

NEW SMYRNA BEACH -- For thousands of years, people harvested their own seeds to perpetuate healthy crops. That time-honored tradition subsided in the 19th century, when seeds were packaged in small envelopes and sold through shops and catalogs.
