The Kennett Seed Library, at the Kennett Library, offers a selection of seeds for anyone to “check out.” You can pick out what you want to plant—it's free and you don’t need to bring back seeds. Choose from vegetable, herb, and flower seeds. Seeds in the collection are (mostly) organic and open pollinated. Find out more here.

The Public Works Department of the Borough of Kennett Square works hard in every season to, quite literally, keep everything in town clean, safe, and in working order—and they have a great sense of humor!
Programs like Kennett Blooms, Christmas in Kennett, street closures for outdoor dining, spring and summer plantings, parades, and much more couldn't happen with Public Works. Please say thank you the next time you see one of the team!
Thank you for reading and for continuing to support our local community, businesses, and nonprofits. We wish you a happy and healthy week "Around the Square"!
