Seed Library Coming to Greenville County


The Greenville County Soil and Water Conservation District and Greenville County Library System have combined their resources to open the County’s first Seed Library at the Sarah Dobey Jones Branch Library in Berea. The Seed Library will provide free, year-round access to over 50 varieties of flower and food seeds to library card holders. Grow your gardening skills with Library System resources including books on gardening and cooking, as well as regularly occurring gardening and sustainability programs.

The Seed Library provides education on growing food, flowers, and native plants while inspiring an increase in local food production, promoting a healthy diet, preserving plant diversity, and encouraging backyard conservation practices. Library card holders may select up to ten seed packets per visit, take their selections to a staff member, and receive a supplementary growing guide provided by Greenville County Soil and Water Conservation District.

Interested in learning more? Join us at the grand opening on Saturday, February 23rd from 11AM-12PM at the Sarah Dobey Jones Branch Library located at 111 N Hwy 25 Bypass, Berea, SC 29617. This kickoff celebration will give you the opportunity to meet local gardeners, learn about upcoming workshops, and be among the first to use the new Seed Library. Plus, there will be giveaways and a used book sale featuring information on gardening and sustainability. Light refreshments will be served.
