Ledyard Seed Library

Thinking Gardens

The Ledyard Seed Library is a community outreach program, housed at the Bill Library, during the months of March-September.  We hope to encourage both new and seasoned gardeners to try something new, learn something new, build healthier eating habits and share your bounty!

We offer a variety of free vegetable, flower & herb garden seeds, which include Heirloom, Organic & Open-pollinated seeds. Seeds are donated by local businesses, commercial vendors, URI Extension, a local seed library, community members & a regional community garden association. The seeds are sorted, inventoried, organized, and in the case of open-pollinated seeds, cleaned & packaged, by local community volunteers, members of the Ledyard Garden Club & LHS AgriScience students.

In addition to free garden seeds, we also offer: 

  • Garden-themed presentations & workshops
  • A wide selection of gardening related books (to check out with your library card)
  • A Resource Binder containing charts, maps, informational articles etc.
  • Many informational pamphlets
  • “Ask a Gardner” feature, where your questions are answered by local expertise (a CT Master Gardener & a Local Farmer).

We hope you enjoy the Ledyard Seed Library! Happy growing!
