Borrow, Grow, Return!
Our seed library is a place where patrons may donate seeds, already dried and storage-ready, harvested from plants they have grown themselves. Donated seeds may be vegetable, fruit or flower seeds, and may be placed in the seed library’s drop-off box. They will be sorted and stored in a card catalog.
Community members may also “borrow” the donated seeds, with the expectation that they will give back some seeds from the plants grown from the borrowed seeds at the end of the growing season. Returning seeds is not required; however, it is encouraged so that the program may keep going.
Please be aware that as this is a community-run program, all the seeds are not guaranteed to germinate. Also, please do not donate seeds from commercially grown plants that prohibit propagation.
The seed catalog and drop-off box are in the library’s downstairs corridor, along with Westford Community Seed Library brochures.
