With spring officially beginning this week, members of the campus community are invited to take part in a growing project known as SeedShare.

SeedShare is a physical collection of seeds located in Penfield Library, a collaboration with the Office of Sustainability. A variety of vegetable, fruit and flower seeds are available through the SeedShare Library Guide. Those interested can browse the current inventory to see what's available and then fill out a Seed Request Form (need to be logged in with an oswego.edu address).

Staff will prepare seeds for pickup within three business days, then send an email from Penfield Library saying the seeds are ready. After that, participants can head to the Checkout & Reserves Desk in Penfield to pick up seeds.

SeedShare runs on the generous donations from fellow gardening and seed-saving campus faculty, staff and students, as well as seed companies who support seed exchange programs. While seed donations are not required, those harvesting their own crops and seeds for future use can consider making a seed contribution that will inspire others to grow their food by filling out the Seed Donation Form.
