The Cody, Powell, and Meeteetse locations of the Park County Library System are buzzing with the launch of their new seed libraries at all three locations. We are so thankful for the generosity of time and resources that we’ve received from community members through seed sorting and donations and it is our hope that we can nurture our communities’ rich tradition of cultivation through engaging programs, shared seed collections, and print resources for many years to come.
What is a Seed Library?
A seed library is a place where folks can acquire seeds for free and return seeds by donation at the end of the season if they are seed savers. Our seed libraries offer seven packets per person per week. Each packet contains approximately enough seed for five mature plants. There’s no obligation to return seeds at the end of the season if you do not feel confident seed saving and we welcome donations of seeds that you did not save at home, but would like to see go to a good home.
Seed Library Programs
We are planning to offer future educational opportunities related to all things plant science, but especially gardening and seed saving.
