Walpole Seed Library
February 2021 Update: Normally housed at the Walpole Public Library, the Seed Library will be available this year in the pavilion at Adams Farm between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., March 11 through March 16, on a self-serve basis, as long as supplies last. This year, you can choose from over 30 varieties of vegetables and a dozen varieties of flowers and herbs.
The Walpole Seed Library, featuring non-GMO seeds of many types of flowers, herbs and vegetables from all over the country, is located in the copy area adjacent to the circulation desk at the Walpole Public Library.

If you take seeds, all we ask is that you donate non-GMO seeds to the Seed Library at the end of the gardening season. These seeds will become next year’s inventory.
