How it Works
Some plants can be grown to eat, and others can be grown for seeds. Some seeds will be returned to the Seed Library donation box for future borrowers. Each year, the Seed Library will grow and change. New seeds will reflect plants which are best adapted to growing conditions on the Olympic Peninsula.
Why save seeds?
There are several reasons to save seeds such as heirloom and non-hybrid varieties of seeds, grown right in your own back yard, including to preserve genetic diversity, preserve flavor and nutrition, preserve unique varieties, preserve cultural heritage, encourage seed strains that are adapted to local conditions, and to attract beneficial insects.
