How To Return Seeds

  • Before harvesting your seeds review the specific instructions you received at checkout.
  • Once the seeds are collected and dried set some aside for yourself to use next year, fill out the information on the labeled envelopes, and place the seeds inside.
  • Drop off your seeds at your library for others to check out!
  • Fill out and turn in a Membership Form and complete a Member's Seed Record.

Keep in mind that the Seed Library works well only if we know the identity and origin of the seeds we borrow and donate. By participating in the seed library you are helping to create a culture of sharing and community. Saving seeds leads to a sustainable future for your community and your garden. If you already save seeds, consider contributing to our seed library. The greater number of seeds that are returned to the seed library the greater the number of community members who can benefit.
