The Ravenswood Seed Library is a free program whose goal is to strengthen our community of gardeners by sharing biodiverse, locally-adapted seeds. The seed library operates on the honor system to maintain a well-stocked collection of pure, healthy, viable seeds for the community to use.

If you are unable to or unsuccessful at harvesting seeds, donations of fresh,     commercially-grown, open-pollination seeds are appreciated.

While returning seeds is not required, it’s encouraged in order to preserve locally-adapted seeds. For the continued success of our seed library, please try to return harvested seed at the end of the season, and only return seeds that you are confident have not been cross-pollinated. Properly harvested seeds will be adapted to our local environment, and produce heartier plants next year.
