The Seed Library

What is the Seed Library?

The Seed Library is located in a card catalog cabinet near the newspapers. The drawers are sorted into "Fruit & Veg," "Herbs," and "Florals," and filled with donated seeds. Any member of the community can borrow seeds from the Seed Library without a card or membership required. Taking seeds from the seed library only promises that if you can, you will donate some of the seeds you save.

The Seed Library is sponsored by the Warren County Master Gardeners, with seeds donated from Fedco Seeds, High Mowing Seeds, Seed Savers Exchange, and local gardeners like you.

Donating Seeds

Take an envelope from the Seed Library and fill out as much information as you can for the seeds being donated. Place the seeds in the envelope, and return it in the drawer marked "Donation Returns." Please ensure the seeds are fully dry and clear of chaff before donating. If donating seeds in a commercial packet, there is no need to fill out a new envelope, but still place it in the "Donation Returns" drawer so that it can be added to the available seeds list.
