The purpose of our seed library is to provide and propagate locally adapted seeds for local gardeners and farmers.  Locally adapted seeds are a vital component of a healthy, secure & local food system. 

It’s time to plan your 2021 garden and you will need seeds!  Even though we are practicing Social Distancing and Sheltering at Home due to Corona Virus (COVID-19), we still want to provide seeds to you!
  1. Go by the Lone Cone Library where the SMB Regional Seed Library is housed.
  2. If you can’t stop by the Library, contact Yvette to make arrangements to get seeds.
  3. Fill out the membership form linked below.
