The Seed Library is currently closed, but will reopen with new seed on Monday, March 2, 2015!
We're a public library collecting and sharing bio-diverse, locally-adapted plant seeds, cultivated by and for area residents.
We've ordered new seed and it's on it's way to be ready for our seed packaging parties on Monday, February 9th at 7:00pm and on Saturday, February 28th at 3:00pm at the Fowler Library, 1322 Main Street, Concord, in the lower level meeting room!
Please join us!

What is a Seed Lending Library?

The Concord Free Public Library is growing one of the first seed lending libraries in Massachusetts. We hope the idea will go 'fungal' and every library will have a seed library.
How it Works
The time honored tradition of seed saving promotes biodiversity and nurtures locally adapted plants varieties. Saving seed increases our community’s capacity to feed itself wholesome
food by encouraging gardening and the cultivation of open pollinated and heirloom seeds.
How Do You Save Seeds?
We will have three categories of seeds; Super Easy, Easy, and Difficult. These categories pertain to what level of saving seeds they are, not how hard they are to grow. We will teach you how to save seed for each group and we also hope to offer organic gardening lessons as well.
