Card holders are encouraged to return at least twice the amount of seeds they originally borrowed. Seeds should be saved according to best practices, as explained in seed saving workshops offered by the library or by partnering organizations. Alternately, the library can recommend seed saving books or literature. Seeds should not be returned to the library unless the grower knows how to properly save them. Returned seeds should be dry and labeled clearly with information specified below:

  • Common name
  • Variety
  • Location of harvest
  • Year of harvest 
  • Seed saving technique. (i.e. dry, wet, fermentation)
  • Any notes pertinent to the seeds
