WHAT IS A SEED LIBRARY?
A seed library is a collection of seeds that are available for lending just like a book or a movie. Our goal is to offer non-Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) and open-pollinated seeds for free exchange. We will be offering a variety of classes and programs to introduce organic gardening, seed collection, and gardening sustainability. East Bonner County is located in Zones 5 - 6, and we’d love to have seeds that will grow here!
There is a seed library at both the Clark Fork Library and the Sandpoint Library, although the Sandpoint Seed Library will be closed until Spring 2018 when the expansion is complete. Please continue to donate seeds for the Spring 2018 gardening season.
HOW DO I USE THE SEED LIBRARY?
- Check out seeds for the seed library collection.
- Plant seeds.
- Grow plants
- Harvest Sees.
- Return seeds to the seed library collection.
Seed donations are always welcome. All seeds must be open-pollinated &/or heirloom, organic and locally harvested.
HOW CAN I HELP?
Community volunteers are in charge of organization and maintenance. If you wish to volunteer your time to present a program or help maintain the seed libraries, please fill out a volunteer application.
