Grow Plants with FREE Seeds from Seed Libraries

Seed Libraries are places where you can access free seeds that you can grow.

Many libraries will let you use your library card to "check out" a certain amount of seeds at one time. 

Every library is different! Contact your local public library near you to see if they have a seed library, and learn how their program works!
