Seed Sources 

The goal of the Concord Seed Lending Library is self-sustainability. Seeds that are "borrowed" will be "returned" through borrowers saving seeds. We do, however, rely on purchased and donated seed to keep our supply strong. Thanks to the Friends of the Concord Free Public Library for helping us purchase seeds from FedCo and Johnny's to Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds and Eden Brothers for seed donations. We recommend the following companies as sources for safe, non-GMO seeds:

Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds
Eden Brothers
FedCo Seeds
Johnny's Seeds
