Seed Library

Starting a garden? Our Little Free Seed Library is stocked and ready for patrons to choose seeds to take home and plant. Thank you to the Master Gardeners of Wayne County for their generous contribution of seed packets.

What is a seed library? It’s a free program that encourages residents to plant, share and save seeds.

Just as traditional libraries enrich a community by providing a way to share books, seed libraries enrich the gardening community by allowing gardeners to share seeds. The benefits of a seed lending library are many: it is a way to have fun, build community with fellow gardeners, and support people who are new to the world of gardening. It also preserves rare, open-pollinated or heirloom seeds and encourages gardeners to save quality seeds that are suitable for your local growing area.

We accept all kinds of seed donations, of both commercially packaged and saved seed. If the donation is saved seed, we ask donors to provide information such as variety, harvest year, and growing notes.
