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!
Seed libraries are located at both the Clark Fork Library and the Sandpoint Library.
How do I use the seed library?
- Check out seeds from the seed library collection.
- Plant seeds.
- Grow plants.
- Harvest Seeds.
- Return harvested 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.
