About the Seed Library

The Duluth Public Seed Lending Library is open to everyone in the Duluth community at no charge. We provide, in addition to seeds, education and resources about growing and saving seeds and organic gardening. It is our hope that seed library patrons will return some seeds from their harvest to make the library self-sustaining.

The Seed Library will start loaning seeds again in mid-March. We will have pepper, tomato, bean, pea, lettuce and dill seeds.

It's never too late to bring in seed returns.  Bring your harvested seeds in today!
