The seed library is all about. . .
- Encouraging our community to dig in and garden
- Reconnecting our community to the traditions of growing tasty, healthy food
- Educating our community about growing, harvesting and saving seeds
- Nurturing a culture of sharing, learning and abundance
Step 1: Choosing Seeds
Visit the library in person and search our seed cabinet by the Collaboratory entrance. The seed collection was created with donations and with ongoing success will have a continual variety of seed choices. There will be different seeds available at different times.
All of the seeds are grouped into herbs, flowers or vegetables. The seed choices are stored in labeled envelopes in a refurbished card catalog. The envelopes have general seed information, such as variety and growing information.
Step 2: Borrowing Seeds
New for 2020: Please take the entire seed packet if it is not broken into individual bags. Each seed storage envelope contains a number of smaller seed borrowing packets. These smaller packets contain enough seeds to plant 5 or more plants. To ensure a plentiful supply for the whole community, please take only as much as you will use in a month. Just sign out your packets using the Seed Library Check-Out Log.
