Woodbury Library Seed Library

Welcome to the Woodbury Library Seed Library.

OUR MISSION:
The Woodbury Library Seed Library strives to provide seeds to the community and encourage our members to celebrate biodiversity and self-sustaining agriculture.

Procedures


1. If this is your first time borrowing seeds, fill out a Membership Record in the binder in the cabinet below.
2. Choose your seeds. Feel free to take seeds from any category, even if you are a beginner seed-saver, but please only take as many seeds as you have space for in your garden.
3. Record your choices on the back of your Membership Record form, in your Member’s Seed Record.
4. Grow your plants! If you have any questions during the growing season, take a look at the many references listed on the back of the “Introduction to Seed Saving” pamphlet, or contact us by email.
5. Harvest your seeds. Be sure to dry them thoroughly and store them in a cool, dry, dark place until you bring them back to the library.
6. Return your seeds to the library in a sealed paper envelope with your name and the plant name, variety, and year of harvest written on it. Also record this information in your Member’s Seed Record. If you are a beginning seed-saver, please only return seeds from the “Easy” category.
For the continued success of the seed library, please try to return more seed than you borrowed, and only return seed that you are confident was not cross-pollinated.
This will keep our drawers well-stocked
