This BB has a point range from 2 to 12 points:
    - 2 points for buying 144 seed packets and putting them in a cardboard box
    - 8 points for a nice wooden set up that looks good and has homegrown seeds
    - 12 points for sheer magnificence

The minimum requirements for this BB are:
- Create a seed library
   - At least 12 edible species
   - At least 12 packets of each species
   - At least 8 people check out packets
   - Dry semi-secure location for the seeds
   - Good signage and seed saving info

To document this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pictures or a video (<2 mins):
- show and describe the seeds for the seed library
- show the materials for the building the seed library
- show the construction of the seed library
- finished seed library in its permanent location
