Seed Library

seed Library banner

Humans have been saving seeds for over 12,000 years. However, in our culture much of that knowledge has been lost over the last hundred years, along with significant biodiversity. When you grow and save your own seeds, you:

– develop seed stock that is well suited to our climate
– save money
– mitigate our dependence on agro-business

When you participate in the seed library, you create a culture of sharing and abundance.

We’re excited to share that our Seed Library is still open!

Since you can’t come to the library and pick up your seeds, we’re sending the seeds to you. E-mail us at seeds@sctylib.org with your name, address, library card and a list of seeds you’d prefer and we’ll mail them to your home.

There’s a limit of 5 per month and we ask that you understand that you may not get the seeds you requested as quantities and varieties are limited. It’s a great time to get out and garden and we’re happy to help
