Seed Library

“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”

― Cicero


What is a Seed Library?

A Seed Library is a collection of seeds that you can borrow to plant and grow food, herbs, and flowers at home.

After your plants mature and "go to seed," you save the seeds and return them to be shared with others.

Try something new and get in the garden! 



How many seeds can I take?
Ten different packets of seeds per library card.


Do I have to return my seeds?
If your plants don't grow or you don't know how to save seeds, it's okay. However, it is appreciated if you are able to bring seeds for next planting season.


How do I get seeds?

You will need an active library card.

-Choose ten different seed packets from the list and fill out the seed library form. Limit one packet per variety. 
-Ask for assistance from a staff member. 
-Plant your seeds.
-Attend classes or read books about gardening!
-Save Seeds.
-Return Seeds.
-Enjoy the fruits (or herbs or veggies) of your labor.
