Lawrence Public Library’s Seed Library provides seeds and offers gardening resources for our community. In addition to providing complimentary vegetable, herb, and flower seeds, we offer a variety of free programs and events on topics related to green spaces and green living. Whether you are brand new to gardening or have the greenest of green thumbs, we are here to help you get growing!
How Does the Seed Library Work?
1. Use our Google form to select up to 5 varieties of seed. We'll get in touch with you when your seeds are ready to pick up. We reserve the right to substitute with another type of seed if we've run out of a variety you requested.
2. Come to the Ask Desk in the library to pick up your seeds. For 2021, the seed library will be available from February 20th – April 30th (or until we run out of seeds).
3. Take your seeds home and watch them grow!
