Seed Library Database: The Stamford Seed Savers Collection of open-pollinated and hybrid seeds have been available in the past at the Stamford Town Hall lobby. Due to current health concerns with C19, the Collection has been moved to a local home site. Contact Seed Savers via email to make an appointment to order seeds and have a packet prepared for pick-up or delivery.
Although we call it a seed library, no one expects participants to return the seeds that are checked out. Access to the seed bank is open to the community. Take what you need and if you have unused seeds make them available to our local growers. If you save seeds, be sure to label them and send us information about their background and history. Thanks!
