Seed Library

Skagit Seed Library

What is the Seed Library?

Our mission is to inspire families to be more sustainable through free seeds, inspiration, and education. While seed saving is encouraged, our primary focus is sharing leftover seed that would otherwise go to waste. All seeds are free and the seed library is open to all Skagit county residents, no library card required. Our seed supply is limited, so we ask that you only take what your family will actually plant in your family garden. Our seeds are donated, so what we have to offer is constantly changing, but we usually have flowers, herbs, and vegetable seed.
