The Door County Seed Library is a free seed project committed to preserving and nurturing heritage seeds and local Door County garden history through education, seed sharing, and seed saving.
Why save seeds?
Humans have been saving seeds for over 12,000 years, but in the last 100 years much of that knowledge has been lost, along with significant plant biodiversity. When you grow and save your own seeds, you can:
• Help promote and preserve biodiversity – think variety!
• Develop seed stock that is well suited to our unique local climate
• Grow healthy food for your family
• Save money!
• Promote pollinator-friendly plants
We encourage, but don’t require, all members to learn basic seed-saving techniques.
When you participate in the Door County Seed Library, you help to create a culture of sharing and abundance.
Become a seed steward!
We encourage all gardeners to learn basic seed saving techniques.
We are looking for local seed stewards to help grow out and save our seeds. We’ll provide you with guidelines to properly grow and save seeds to ensure that the purity of each variety remains intact. Contact us for more info!
