St. Johns County Seed LibraryA COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP
The Seed Library is a collection of open-pollinated and heirloom seeds that you can borrow to plant and grow at home. By saving seeds as a community we help create local seed stocks that are better acclimated to our unique climate and which support an abundant and genetically diverse landscape.
We support gardeners from beginner to expert, and help you learn how to grow, harvest, and save seeds. You may find our resource binder (located next to the library) to be a great first stop.
Our seed collection depends on donations and seasonality. You’ll see different seeds available at different times, so check in frequently to see what’s available.
