Why a Seed Library?
The Greenville County Soil and Water Conservation District and Greenville County Library System have combined their resources to establish a free, accessible, source of flower and food seeds ready for planting.

The Seed Library program will:
• provide education on growing food, flowers, and/or native plants
• increase local food production and promote healthy diets
• help to preserve plant diversity with heirloom seeds

What is included in the Seed Library?
The Seed Library includes over fifty varieties of seed provided by generous donations from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, High Mowing Organic Seeds, Seed Savers Exchange, Slow Food Upstate, and Sow True Seeds. The seeds have been sorted, separated by type, packaged, and clearly labeled with information and instructions by Greater Greenville Master Gardeners and the Greenville County Soil and Water Conservation District.

How does it work?
1. Simply open a drawer and select up to ten seed packets. Seeds are sorted by the Greenville County Soil & Water Conservation District.
2. Help keep the Seed Library stocked by showing your selections to library staff who will note the seeds you’ve chosen. You’ll also be provided with the opportunity to get a library card and receive helpful growing resources for the seeds you’ve selected.
3. Take your seeds home to plant and enjoy!
