The Mass Aggie Seed Library will be open to the public, along with the UMass Amherst Science & Engineering Library, beginning Monday, June 21st, 2021.
Sow seeds of resilience and generosity.
What’s new in the Mass Aggie Seed Library Summer 2021?
Things you might notice:
Individual pre-packaged seed packets
The card catalog seed drawers are a bit messy
As a result of packaging seeds to mail to patrons, you will find some pre-packaged seed envelopes in the seed drawers. These pre-packaged seeds (mostly) have the name of the grower and the name of the seed variety. For specific growing instructions, go to the website of the grower and find the seed variety.
With patrons returning donated seed in a variety of packaging, the seed envelope sizes are uneven and therefore the seed drawers are a bit messy to accommodate the variety of sizes and shapes.
The Mass Aggie Seed Library is housed in the Science & Engineering Library located in the Lederle Graduate Research Center Lowrise at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
The Seed Library is normally open for all to use on a self-service basis during the hours the Science & Engineering Library is open.

A seed is a dream encased in hope.
