Seed Library (Belle Plaine Library)
The Seed Library at Belle Plaine Library offers free, open-pollinated seeds for growing. Anyone can come in, pick up free seeds, grow them, and return your gathered seeds from your grown plants back to the library for others to use. This initiative is a great way to share the love of gardening in our community.
- No library card required! Interested users can browse the seed library bins, select their desired seed packets (specially labeled envelopes packed with 5-15 seeds, depending on type of plant), and then “check out” using a simple sign-out sheet. Users can choose up to 10 packets per day.
