Seed Library


                                                                                         

        Our Seed Library’s mission is to lend free seeds to community members in order to teach and promote the process of seed saving and sharing.

The Seed Library at Webster Public Library is closed for the season and we are collecting seed donations for 2018

We accept all kinds of seed donations, of both saved seed and commercially packaged seeds. We’re happy to accept them even if the package has been opened. For those smaller plots in urban and suburban gardens, a packet may contain too many seeds. So, instead of letting open packets languish in the shed, gardeners bring their leftovers to share.
