Seed Library

The Seed Library is collection of seed packets and growing instructions, which is designed to encourage people to plant, save, and share seeds.

Here's how it works:

-You must have a library card to participate in the seed library.

-A small package of seeds is checked out, with the understanding that you will grow the seeds.

-Save seeds from the plants, and return a similar package of seeds to the Library. (Return envelopes will be provided)

-There is no fine if the seeds are not returned.

Here are some documents which you may find helpful:
