Seed Library and Exchange

Welcome to the West Acton Citizens' Library Seed Library and Exchange

A seed library is a place where gardeners “borrow” seeds from the library at planting time. At the end of the growing season, they save seeds from the plants and return a portion of the seeds to the library.

  1. Pick up your free seed packets and growing instructions at the West Acton Citizens' Library.

  2. Take them home and grow them in your garden.

  3. Harvest seeds from produce and thoroughly air dry them.

  4. Place them in the envelopes provided, label and return to the library so others can grow them next year.

We also take in orphan seeds from local gardeners who have extras and make those available to gardeners who need extra.
