The Seed Library's purpose is to make seeds available to people for plant varieties that will do well in the Duluth climate. We ask that borrowers try to return seeds from some of those plants back to the Seed Library in the fall.
This year, the Seed Library will probably be ready to start loaning seeds around the end of February. There will be seeds for peppers, tomatoes, beans, peas, lettuce and an herb (which hasn't been selected yet).
We are now accepting seed returns. Bring your harvested seeds in today!
