In recent years, there has been a growing interest in sustainability and environmental conservation. As a result, people are increasingly looking for ways to reduce their impact on the environment while still enjoying the benefits of gardening. The launch of the Cuttings Library on Earth Day, April 22, is a perfect example of such a concept.
The Cuttings Library is a new initiative that allows individuals to exchange their unused plant cuttings. This means that gardeners who have pruned their plants or have extra cuttings can donate them to the library for others to use. These cuttings can then be taken by others to propagate and grow their own plants, creating a more sustainable and eco-friendly way to garden.

The library will have a wide variety of plants available, including common houseplants such as spider plants and pothos, as well as more exotic species like orchids and ferns. The goal is to have a diverse collection that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and gardening skill levels.
To make the process easier, the library has both an online catalog and a physical counter where people can exchange their cuttings. Those who wish to donate their cuttings can simply bring them to the counter, where they will be labeled and organized for others to take home. The online catalog allows people to search for specific plants and check their availability before visiting the library.
To celebrate the launch of the Cuttings Library, a conference on houseplant care will be presented by Jardin Dion on April 25th at 7 p.m. This conference will provide valuable information on how to care for your plants and ensure that they thrive. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions and share their own experiences.
The Cuttings Library is an excellent way to promote sustainable gardening and reduce waste while fostering community engagement. By exchanging cuttings, individuals can learn more about different plant species and connect with fellow gardeners. It is a unique and exciting concept that is sure to grow in popularity as more people become interested in sustainable living.
