Seeds By Mail beta test

If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.

During the stay-at-home orders, many Menlo Park neighbors are starting new gardens. Seeds By Mail is a beta test for sending seeds to Menlo Park residents in a way that is safe, sensible, and compliant with shelter-in-place orders.

The Seeds By Mail beta test is available to Menlo Park resident library card holders who sign up for the Menlo Park Seed Library.

πŸŒΌπŸ˜ƒ A "green" resource for the community. The Menlo Park Seed Library operates as a community seed exchange in which borrowers may β€œcheck out” a wide variety of vegetable and flower seeds to plant in their gardens for home use. The seeds are provided at no cost to Menlo Park residents.

The Seed Library is a public service of Menlo Park Library to:

  • Enhance food security
  • Promote a greener community environment
  • Foster strong neighborhood ties
  • Educate about the natural world.

The Menlo Park Seed Lending Library is a project of the City of Menlo Park with support from Menlo Park Library Foundation. Learn more
