Seed Library is a great opportunity to borrow and plant seeds at home, as well as donate them to the other gardeners.

Seed Library obtains original seeds and issues them in small packages with all the neccessary information regarding on how to choose and grow plants below. Seed Library collection is growing due to the donations – we accept flower, perennial and edible indoor plant seeds used as seasoning. If you’d like to donate seeds, please put down your name, mark place and time, where the seeds were collected (city, county, month, year), and a plant name.
