Two work parties are planned for receiving seed donations, and for seed cleaning. If you are saving vegetable, herb, melon, grain or flower seeds, you are invited to share some of them with other local gardeners by donating seeds to the Wood River Seed Library. If the seeds are not already cleaned, we will clean them together. We will then catalog them, put 10% in our Seed Vault, and the rest in our Seed Bank for free distribution to the public. Donating seeds makes you a member of WRSL! There is no membership fee.
Bring your dry seeds, preferably in paper bags or in (repurposed) glass jars to ensure proper aeration. Either cover the jar with a piece of cloth held by a string or rubber band, or pierce a few nail size holes in the lid. If your seeds are completely dry, the cover can remain intact, but do not fill the jar more than one third full so there is plenty air space for the seeds to breathe and continue to cure without getting moldy.
Please label your seed donations with your name, the source of the seeds, the location where the seeds were harvested, the name of the seeds, their characteristics and qualities, and optional notes. This information is needed to fill out the back of the WRSL seed packets, shown here.
Of course, each work party is an opportunity to "borrow" some seeds and share your harvest with other like minded people, and have fun too.
Thank you for helping WRSL in its mission!
