Getting Your Seeds

We’re thrilled to announce that the seed library will be available to Saratoga Springs City School District residents on April 11, 2024. Then, on April 12, 2024, we extend a warm invitation to everyone in our community

Step 1: Get Seeds

  1. Head to the Library. Come into the library and choose up to 9 packets of seeds from the current selection, while supplies last.
  2. Visit us at our Outreach Van locations and at the Saratoga Springs Wednesday Farmers Market. Check our schedule for locations, dates and times.

Our seed collection depends on donations, growing success, and seasonal changes.
Library seeds are from High Mowing Organic Seeds and the Hudson Valley Seed Company.
We cannot guarantee the content of seeds harvested and donated by the community - take a chance and see what blossoms.

Step 2: Grow

Get ready to get dirty and go through the trials and tribulations of nurturing a plant.

Step 3: Return

Collect seeds from your healthiest crops and set some aside for yourself and bring some back to the library for next year’s seed library.

Seed-saving envelopes are available at the Info Desk or you can print your own form.
