For beginner to experienced gardeners, our Seed Library is a great opportunity to try new varieties, contribute to local food security, and learn a new skill- saving seeds!
"Borrow" seeds from our collection, plant and harvest, and bring back seeds to share with gardeners next year.
To donate seeds:
- Please ensure they are open-pollinated varieties
- Put the seeds in an envelope and label it with the variety and year of harvest (we have envelopes here!)
- Bring your labeled seeds back to the Library. They will be added to the collection so other people may check them out and plant them next season!
