We'd love pictures of your seed starts & garden to share with our Facebook followers and on the Seed Library Gallery page! Feel free to email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
What is a Seed Library?
A collection of donated seeds (vegetable & flower) that are available to both patrons and non-patrons of Harney County Library. You don't need a library card to use the Seed Library, but we'll be happy to make one for you. Seed packets are free – please check out only what you can use!
If you have never gardened before this is your opportunity to give it a try without having to invest a great deal of money. You might only want to grow a few herbs or a row of carrots. A tomato can be raised in a bucket on a back deck. Herbs can be raised on your kitchen window sill. Perhaps you've always wanted to try a certain vegetable but didn't want to purchase a whole seed packet - this is your chance to try something new.
How does the Seed Library work?
The Seed Library operates on an honor system. We have a variety of seeds available. Our seeds tend to be over a year old but you should still get good germination. 6 packets per person, please!
I have extra seeds; may I donate them to the library?
We will accept seeds that are in their original packaging, but no hybrids or GMO seeds and no more than 3 years old. We encourage you to donate some seed back at the end of the growing season. If you are donated homegrown seed, please harvest and clean before bringing to the library.
Do I bring the vegetables I grow to the library?
You're also welcome to share any extra healthy plants you have grown, labeled with the exact source and if it is organic/non organic.
