Seed Library

Seed Library Policies

Borrowing Seeds:

  • You do not need a library card to take seeds.
  • We ask that everyone taking seeds fill out the Seed Borrowing Log.
  • Seeds are arranged by type (ex: tomatoes, flowers, herbs) and then alphabetically by common name. Older seeds are placed in front of newer seeds. When possible, please take older seeds first.
  • Don't forget your planting instructions card found behind the seed packs.
  • We ask that you only take what you'll use so that we will have enough seeds for everyone.

Lending Seeds:

If you'd like to donate seeds to our library, please follow these guidelines:

  • We only accept hybrid seeds if they come from a seed company in original packaging; hybrid seeds from your own plants may produce unpredictable offspring​.
  • Organic, non-GMO seeds are preferred but we will take other types!
  • We only accept open-pollinated seeds if they come from plants that were only grown around the same variety. For example, if you grew several kinds of squash near each other, the resulting seeds may produce hybrid plants. If you only grow one variety, such as crookneck yellow squash but no other kinds in the Curcubit family, those seeds would likely not produce hybrids so we would accept those.
  • Fill out the seed donation form and include it with your seed donations - one form per type of seed. Please give your donation to a staff member for evaluation.
