Seed Library

The seed library is open.

so that you can grow your own food,
so that children can learn first-hand about the wonder and excitement of sprouting plants,
and so that there are always different varieties of plants being grown.

You don’t need acres.
Plant in a pot, a window box, a front yard, or a tea mug.

Take; grow; enjoy; it’s as simple as that.
Anyone can come and take seeds.
You don’t even need a library card.

Limit of 15 packets per family.
