The Menlo Park Seed Lending Library provides access to heritage seeds, gardening workshops, education and resources to encourage residents to grow food and foster community resilience, self-reliance, and a culture of sharing.
Located at the Main Library and Belle Haven Branch Library, the Seed Lending Library operates as a community seed exchange in which borrowers can “check out” a wide variety of vegetable and flower seeds to plant in their gardens for home use.
The Menlo Park Seed Lending Library is a project of the City of Menlo Park with support from Menlo Park Library Foundation.
