Borrow. Grow. Share.

What is a Seed Library?

A seed library is a place where community members can borrow or exchange seeds for free. Local gardeners and farmers may borrow seeds with the agreement that they attempt to grow them, then return some of the next generation seeds to the library for others to borrow. The FDL Seed Library is available to all patrons, not just library cardholders. The process is easy, fun, and free!

GROW
Find the provided instructions for your seeds and start planting. You can find basic seed planting information in our gardening section. Remember to save the seeds from the harvest!

SHARE

Fill out a donation envelope from the FDL Seed Library (or download the template) and place your seeds in the prepared envelope. Drop off your seeds at the circulation desk for next year's growing season.


Donations of seeds are also welcome to help continue our efforts. The more seeds in the library, the more others can experience growing their own vegetables, herbs, and flowers! Seed saving is something humans have done for over 10,000 years. Rejoin the ritual… Participate in our seed library and create a culture of sharing, sustainability, and abundance in our community.
