Donating to the Mass Aggie Seed Library

There are many ways to help the Mass Aggie Seed Library efforts.  

  • Help get the word out about the library
  • Save and return seeds for others
  • Donate unopened or partially used seed packets
  • Volunteer your seed-saving passion
    • adopt a seed drawer to keep it tidy and updated with the backstock
    • stamp envelopes - endless!!!!
    • help wrangle the backstock cabinet
    • process donated seeds - clean and package seeds
    • cull older seed packets 
    • create a piece of art for display in the seed exhibit space (locked exhibit display case)
    • initiate a community engagement art project 
  • Donate garden-themed jigsaw puzzles for student use and engagement
  • Contribute to purchase seed library materials:
  • Donate your gently used gardening magazines for others to read

Your donation will help sustain the current operating costs of seed envelopes and outreach materials and help us reach the next level of seed education with seed-saving workshops, education materials, exhibits, and seed cleaning equipment to loan.  What began as an idea has flourished and grown into a community engagement project thanks to gifts like yours.
