We are boosting community food security and resilience by offering free seeds for people to grow their own food, and building a living collection of seeds that grow well in our climate. 

Members of the seed library can "check out" as many seeds varieties as they would like and choose a few to save seeds from to return to the library and lend out to the next gardener. 

The Homer Seed Library is located at the Homer Public Library and is free to join! We also offer workshops to learn how to garden and how to save seeds!
