  The San Miguel Basin Regional Seed Library is now at the Lone Cone Library in Norwood!  You can go into the library Monday-Friday 10am-5pm and Saturday 11am-4pm—Tell a librarian you want seeds!  If you can’t get website by emailing

In order to keep the library stocked with seeds to share, we ask you return seeds if possible (see brochure on website for more information) but we don’t REQUIRE it—we just want you to have seeds.  Contact us if you have questions.

For Colorado gardening information, download the Colorado Veggie Growing Guide.  It also comes in Spanish!
