Community Seed Library
The Community Seed Library is a self-service seed sharing library, provided by JMU Libraries, and available to all. No library card necessary!
We have seeds for vegetables, herbs, and flowers. We prioritize heirloom or open-pollinated seeds and plants that are well-suited to growing conditions in the Shenandoah Valley. We also strive to provide culturally competent seed types, recognizing the diverse populations and gardening knowledge of our neighbors across the Valley and their plant traditions.
The Community Seed Library encourages community empowerment and supports food sovereignty by providing:
- free access to seeds for all
- programming to share knowledge and skills related to growing gardens and saving seeds
- relevant resources and information
