Seed Library Exchange

...Read More


What is a Seed Exchange Program? The Seed Exchange Program is a library of sorts. It is designed to offer the community a way of "swapping"

both seeds and ideas. Seeds are free to anyone willing to grow the seeds at home. Patrons are simply asked to save seeds of any successful plants to donate back to the library in exchange for more, however this is not required to participate. 


How to Participate

  • REGISTER  - Simply fill out a participation sheet at the library
  • BORROW - Select no more than three seed packets from the seed containers. Record which seeds you are borrowing in the Seed Exchange Log
  • GROW - Take your seeds home and plant them. Be sure to utilize all of the resources provided by the library to identify the best practices for growing your seeds
  • GATHER - At the end of the growing season, harvest and dry the seeds so that you may share with others
  • RETURN - Bring some seeds back to the library in exchange for new seeds!

More information about saving seeds can be found on these websites:
