Seed Swap

Seed Swap Instead of purchasing seeds, why not swap seeds for your flower and vegetable gardens?

Stafford Library now has a seed swap area set up with seeds for you to choose from. You are not required to donate but since it is a SWAP we welcome donations to grow our collection. When you harvest your garden, simply label and donate some seeds from your favorite flowers or vegetables and see if we have any you would like to take in exchange.
