How to use the Seed Library:

Taking from the Seed Library

  • You do not need to bring seeds to the library in order to utilize it but learning to save seed and returning them is highly encouraged. Be sure to check out our website for educational resources on how to get started saving your own seeds.
  • Seeds are available in both individualized packets from bins or in bulk containers. Please do not take more than necessary. 
  • There are coin envelopes, labels, and pens in the shed for you to use when taking from the bulk containers. Be sure to label the coin envelope with the seed information from the bulk container. This is especially important if you plan to return seed from these plants.

Returning Seed

  • If you’re dropping off individualized packets, make sure they’re labeled correctly and stick them in the correct bin(s).
  • If you’re dropping off in bulk, make sure your container is properly labeled and placed next to the correct bin.
  • Properly labeled seeds (whether in bulk or individual packets includes):         Seed type, variety, date saved, and any additional notes you may have a about your seed.
