The Blandford Nature Library
Information coming soon!
The Blandford Seed Library
The goal of our Seed Library is to provide our community members with a collection of heirloom, organic, non-GMO seeds from our very own region. The seed library will offer a variety of seeds with advantages against diseases, pests, and weather conditions in our area and provide a place for our community to share seeds with one another.
Seed borrowing is available for all visitors!
- Limit 5 seed packets per household per season
- Sign the seed library contact sheet in the binder (optional)
We accept non-GMO, organically-grown seeds and heirlooms. We prefer seeds from plants that have not been sprayed or treated with pesticides and herbicides, and have not been fertilized with synthetic fertilizers in order to pass along specific genes.
- Donations can be brought to the front desk at the Mary Jane Dockeray Visitor Center, please give them to our staff so we can process your donation prior to distribution
- Please label seeds with the following information:
- Name of the plant
- Year it was harvested
- Where the original seed came from (if applicable)
