ROPL’s Seed Library provides flower and vegetable seeds to the community for free! Patrons can “check out” seeds by USING THIS GOOGLE FORM. We ask that seeds are “returned” by harvesting seeds from a plant or two that you grow. Just like other library materials, you can use myLIBRO, or call (248) 246-3700, to schedule a contactless pickup time. Seeds can be returned with your other library materials. Have seeds to donate? We will happily take those too! Donated seeds will help to add diversity to our collection.
Our Seed Library is an important library resource that helps to promote food independence, seed diversity, maintaining heritage varieties, and the saving of seeds that are adapted to the local climate and growing conditions. Seed libraries share the wonder of growing your own food- or plant- from seed! Seed saving and sharing is a money saving, sustainable practice that is hundreds of years old, connects us to the past as well as the earth, and is a great way to give back to the community. And it's fun!
