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.

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.
