Seed Library

A seed lending library is a free exchange designed to promote health, local food and a stronger community. Here’s how it works: check out a package of seeds for free at the library, plant them and let some grow to maturity. Then harvest the next generation of seeds and feel free to return some to the library so others can check them out next growing season! Visit this page for more information.
