'Borrow' From Mansfield Library's New Seed Library

Seed Library users will not be penalized if they are unable to return seeds back to the Seed Library at the end of the season" (well, that's a relief!).

In addition to providing access to free seeds, we hope to help support gardeners and seed savers, from beginner to expert, through the process of growing, harvesting, and seed saving.

 Our Seed Library is about…

  • Encouraging our community to dig in and garden
  • Educating our community about growing, harvesting and saving seeds
  • Creating a community–sustained seed collection at our library
  • Nurturing a culture of sharing and abundance

At harvest time, please take some extra steps to save seeds for others.  We ask that a portion of the seeds you save from the strongest, tastiest, and most vigorous plants be returned to the Seed Library to keep the library self—sustaining. 

Seed Library users will not be penalized if they are unable to return seeds back to the Seed Library at the end of the season; we understand that seed saving is new to many of our community members.

So…..stop in, have a look, “borrow” some seeds, grab a brochure and helpful handouts and start your gardening adventure!
