Cold Weather Crops Now Available
We now have a limited supply of cold weather crops available in the seed library. Please take a maximum of 6 packets to ensure there is enough for the whole community. There is no sign out log at present. We expect an abundant supply of seeds for the coming season, so please check back in mid-winter.
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 packets are stored in a refurbished card catalog.
Step 2: Borrowing Seeds
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.
