Ferndale Seed Library

What’s a Seed Library? 

A seed library is a collection of harvested and donated seeds from your community. Seeds are then checked out and planted by gardeners in your community. At the end of the growing season, gardeners are then asked to harvest the seeds from their plants and bring them back to the library.
