Seed Library

Welcome to the Seed Library!

The Seed Library is open to everyone in the community with no charge! Check out seeds in the spring and return your seeds in the fall. The purpose of the seed library is build up a collection of locally grown seeds specifically in Northern Minnesota and to tell a story about it. You do not need a library card or be an expert in seed saving to participate with the seed library.

The seed library was created in partnership with the Duluth Public Library and St. Louis County Master Gardeners.
