The Seed Lending Library works because borrowers return their seeds at the end of the season. With that in mind, we encourage you to save some seeds from your garden and return them to the UBC Seed Lending Library.
*** September seed donors can enter their name in a draw for a seedy gift basket! ***
Bring your seedy donations to one of the Seed Lending Library locations below, or to Science Expo.
