Kingston Community Seed Library

What is a seed library?

Our beautiful seed library, designed and painted by Kingston resident Jess Kjellander and her daughter Olivia.

Seed libraries are a grassroots movement designed to help support local growers, keep up crop diversity, and connect gardeners of all experience and interest levels.

Seed libraries work through the efforts of the community to save seeds and share them with their neighbors.  Gardeners can browse the library and take home seeds they would like to grow.  Growers who wish to donate can collect seeds according to the seed saving instructions and check their seeds into the library for others to use.

Kingston’s Seed Library

Our seed library features dozens of varieties of flowers, fruits, and vegetables.  The seed packets contain basic information about each seed, but if you would like more detailed information on specific plant types, check out one of our books or use a computer to research how to most effectively grow your plants.  To find out more, visit our Seed Library Page, or stop by and get growing!
