Seed Lending Library

How to Borrow Seeds

Seeds can be checked out, just like books!

Seed packets contain enough seeds to grow 2-3 plants.

The seeds that are available have come to you through donation, so supplies are limited. We ask that you limit your check-out of seeds to 5 packets at a time.

You have a growing season checkout period for the seeds (and you can always renew!). If, for whatever reason, you were unable to harvest any seeds from your plant, let us know! There are no fines associated with the seed library, although we would like to know when seeds aren't coming back.

There are no overdue fines for your seeds.

Happy growing!


We hope that you are successful in your seed saving endeavors and will return a portion of the seeds harvested back to the Seed Lending Library, while keeping a portion for yourself.

The seed saving aspect of the Seed Library is what ensures a thriving, regionally adapted and biologically diverse seed collection that is self-sustaining.
