Heirloom Seed Library

Heirloom Seed Library

We’re happy to be offering heirloom garden seeds to our patrons once again! This year we have FULL SIZED packets available. Our request – 3 packets per family.

We ask that in return for taking garden seeds that you do 3 things:

  1. Plant the seeds
  2. Explore other gardening resources from our library including books & databases
  3. Share at least 2 photos with us that document your gardening adventures. (Photos can be planting, growing, or harvesting.) Send photos to: almo.kirsten@als.lib.wi.us
