WCC Seed Library

The Bailey Library does more than disseminate information…it also disseminates seeds for free!

Since 2015, the Seed Library has offered a vast selection of seeds for you to plant.

It is funded by the WCC Sustainability Council to encourage students, staff, and the community to live more sustainably by growing their own organic food to consume. You will discover a trove of flowers (some are edible), fruit, vegetables, and herbs. Have you ever tasted a purple tomato or a red carrot, cooked with chervil, or smelled a Zinnia?

Come into the Seed Library to explore your options of what to grow in your garden.

Borrow the seeds, cultivate, harvest, and enjoy your bounty. All activities are great for personal and planetary health. Also, the seeds do not need to be returned and you can save them for the next year.

You will find the Seed Library collection of heirloom seeds in the old-fashioned card catalog near the Research Help Desk. For more information look here in the Seed Library Research Guide.

When you are in the Library, check out the display of books on improving your soil, growing your garden, and cooking with your very fresh ingredients.
