Eurobodalla Seed Library

The Eurobodalla Seed Library is now open, offering free seeds for your garden and helping to build a collection of seeds to share with others.

How the Seed Library works

  • Borrow - You can borrow up to three seed packets.
  • Plant - Plant the seeds from your packets in your garden.
  • Harvest - Allow one of two of your plants to produce seeds.
  • Donate - After harvesting the seeds, kindly send some back to the Seed Library.

What seed will be available

The Seed Library has a variety of vegetable and herb seeds. The variety depends on donations and what is in season. Basic instructions on how to plant the seeds are written on the seed packet.

Eurobodalla Libraries makes no guarantee about the quality, variety or viability of seeds made available as part of the Seed Library.

How to contribute to the Seed Library

We welcome donations of vegetable and herb seeds to the Seed Library. Seeds must be clean, dry and the packet labelled showing:

  • name and variety of seed
  • date the seed is harvested
  • growing tips (if you have any).

Place donated seeds in an envelope or Ziploc bag and give to library staff.

Vision for the Seed Library

Community seed sharing aligns with our goals of supporting sustainability and building food resilience in our local community.

Through our Seed Library program, we aim to help our library members and residents:

  • have fun and learn about growing things
  • build community connections with fellow gardeners in the Eurobodalla area
  • support people who are new to the world of gardening
  • help to save quality seeds that are suitable for the local growing area.
