Do you have a garden and want to plant some vegetable or flower seeds? CBU students, faculty, staff, and alumni can now get free seeds at the CBU Seed Library. Located on the main floor of Plough Library in a vintage card catalog cabinet, these seeds are free to take and use. Take what you need, and after your harvest, you can save seeds from your yield (if possible), or donate different seeds to keep the exchange going. Simply complete the online form to let us know which seeds you take — and start planting!

We currently have the following seeds: Arugula, Coriander, Cosmos (mixed variety), Cucumber (Marketmore 76), Dill, Green Beans, Marigold (large yellow), Oregano, Parsley (flat leaf), Radish (Nelson), Watermelon (Moon & Stars), and Zinnia (mixed and Benary's Giant).
