Seed Library

A seed library is a community-based culture of saving & sharing seeds. The Library provides free seeds, Master Gardener instruction and supporting resources. The gardener lets a part of the crop fully mature, saves the seed and returns a portion of them to the Library to be distributed in the next growing season. Seed libraries preserve and protect biodiversity, decrease our dependency on others, reduces food insecurity, support our pollinators, and helps protect the variety and availability of multi-generational seed and story. All experience levels are welcome to join our endeavor!
