The Duluth Public Seed Lending Library is open to everyone in the Duluth community at no charge. We provide, in addition to seeds, education and resources about growing and saving seeds and organic gardening. It is our hope that seed library patrons will return some seeds from their harvest to make the library self-sustaining.
This year, the Seed Library start loaning seeds in early March. We will have pepper, tomato, bean, pea, lettuce and dill seeds.
It's never too late to bring in seed returns. Bring your harvested seeds in today!
