What is a Seed Library?

A Seed Library is a collection of seeds that you can borrow to plant and grow your own food, herbs and flowers at home. After your plants mature and "go to seed," you save the seeds and return them to the library so they can be shared with others. 


Do I Have to Return Seeds?

No. If your plants don't grow or you don't know how to save seeds it's okay.
