The Seed Library is a collection of open-pollinated and heirloom seeds that residents of Hamilton County with a valid library card from their home library can borrow to plant at home. Seeds are available to "check" out from early March through October. Each person may check out up to 5 packets per visit, to a total of 15 packets per season.
At the end of the growing season, borrowers are encouraged to save seeds to return to the library and/or keep for their garden next year. The Seed Library will only accept open-pollinated seeds that are self-pollinated.
The Seed Library is a partnership between the Master Gardeners of Hamilton County and The Carmel Clay Public Library.
