Check out seeds to plant at home with our brand new Seed Library!
How does it work? Simply “check out” the seeds of your choice by logging them on the clipboard. If there are some left in the bag after you plant, feel free to return them to the drawer. That’s it! Have seeds to donate? Have extra seeds or saved seeds? Drop them off at the desk and we will add them to the library. We accept seed donations all year long.
