The Seed Library is Open!
 

The idea is that you can "borrow" seeds by taking from the library and then return seeds harvested from what you grow.

Special thank you to Live Bee or Die Farm and Grasshoppers for seed donations to get us started!

Donations can be dropped off at the seed library during business hours. "Heirloom" seeds preferred!

For more information on what we are looking for, how to donate, and the types of seeds we are looking for, please refer to these links:
