The Seed Library


The La Crosse Public Library and Hillview Urban Agriculture Center are partnering to lend free heirloom seeds to community members in order to promote the art of heirloom seed saving and sharing. We support local sustainability efforts that encourage growing and eating wholesome, fresh, and affordable food.

For detailed information on what is available and how to save seeds, please visit the Seed Library page at the Hillview Urban Agriculture website.

The Seed Library is closed for 2017:  We are no longer checking out seeds.  Saved seeds can be returned to the library any time.  We will open again in Spring 2018.

Save the date!  Our new, expanded Garlic and Tomato Fest will be on Saturday, September 23 from 10-12.  Watch for more details to come.
