Free seed library with organic non-GMO seeds for the Springfield community. Request some today from our Mason Square Branch!
The Mason Square Branch Seed Library features a great variety of FREE 100% organic, non-GMO seeds for vegetables, greens, herbs, and flowers, made possible through a grant from Vermont-based seed company, High Mowing Organic Seeds. With multiple varieties, there’s something for everyone!
Because there is a limited supply of seeds, we ask that patrons request no more than 5 seed envelopes per library visit. Please call the Mason Square Branch Library to reserve your FREE seeds for pickup!
The library works with the Northeast Organic Farming Association and the Mason Square Community Garden Group to provide Springfield residents with hands-on gardening workshops led by experienced gardeners. Interested in learning more about gardening? Be sure to check out our virtual gardening workshops, a series on basic gardening practices designed to help novice and experienced gardeners alike.
We also have a variety of gardening books, covering urban gardening, vegetable gardens, container gardens, flower gardens, and more – ask library staff to help you find the perfect book!
