Imagine Grinnell Seed Library is Open

Seeds

Imagine Grinnell Seed Library is open and housed at the Drake Community Library.

People are able to check out seeds for both vegetables and native plants from the library free of charge. No seed saving experience is required, and people will not be expected to return seeds to the library. However, approved seed savers may help support the library by saving seeds.

In the future, Imagine Grinnell plans on hosting seed saving workshops to teach the basic principles of seed saving and providing instructional seed saving materials.

Imagine Grinnell hopes that the seed saving library will aid the preservation of the genetic diversity of seeds and also encourage people to plant both native plants and vegetables.

Contact imaginegrinnell@iowatelecom.net if you have any questions or wish to donate seeds.
