How To Start A Seed Library

Community Seed Network logoLike-minded people in communities around the world are offering low-cost or free, local, open-pollinated, pesticide-free seeds. Members borrow seeds, grow plants, and allow a plant or two to go to seed at the end of the season. Those seeds are returned to the library, which will grow 10 of each batch to confirm purity before distributing the rest.

It is called The seed library – a place where community members can get seeds for free or for a nominal fee and is run for the public benefit.
