County residents with library cards can "borrow" a packet of 10 to 15 seeds. Each packet is labeled as containing seeds that are easy to grow or that require medium or advanced gardening knowledge. These "borrowers" plant the seeds, grow the plants, then voluntarily collect and return seeds from those plants to replenish the collection.
Here's a link to the seed library site:
"The Seed Library's mission is to help nurture a thriving community of gardeners and seed savers. In addition to providing access to free seeds, we hope to help support gardeners and seed savers, from beginner to expert, through the process of growing, harvesting, and seed saving."
