Seed Saving Library

ImageWautoma Seed Saving Library
Opens in Februrary runs while supplies last.

The seeds you borrow from the Wautoma Library are lent to you at no cost, but they are priceless. At harvest time, we ask you to take extra steps to save seeds and bring a portion back to us so that others may check them out.  It’s easier than you might think, and fun too!
