What is a seed library?
If you are new to seed libraries, here's a quick explanation. A seed library is just what it sounds like: a library for seeds. Except in this type of library, you don't need a library card, and there is no due date. A seed library is a place where you can grow seeds, and then save your own to contribute to our growing library. It's beneficial to the environment, your health, and even your wallet. You save money by growing your own vegetables!
What Are the Rules for Borrowing Seed?
Borrowing seeds is a very simple process. But before you grab a single seed, make sure you do some research about the basics of seed saving. The seed library website is also a great, reliable resource. Also, you need to make sure you fill out a borrowing sheet so that we know what seed you have, and if you'll return it or not. Returning seeds isn't mandatory, but it is preferred so that our seed library stays sustainable!
