How to Borrow Seeds

Borrowing Seeds

  1. Browse seed collection - Seeds are organized by plant family folders and located in individual cultivar envelopes in the file cabinet.
  2. Take what you need - Please ensure that there are enough seeds for our entire community and only take what you intend to grow. We recommend no more than 3 seed packets a month.
  3. Bring back - Our seeds are all open-pollinated and designed to be returned if you are able. Simply bring them back in an envelope or bag, and drop them in our return tray.
