Growing one seed at a time, True to Seed honors the tradition of seed saving and the preservation of genetic diversity.

We strive to develop locally adapted seed varieties, strengthen community self-sufficiency and promote a culture of sharing.

Located in the Coeur d’Alene Public Library (702 East Front Street)

What is a Seed Library?  Run by volunteers, we accept, lend and share seeds at no cost.

How Does It Work? The Coeur d’Alene Seed Sharing Library operates on the honor system. You can become a member by filling out the Member Information Form (located in a binder on top of the card catalog) and then borrow seeds, recording them on your Seed Record. Returning seeds is not required in order to check out seed packets.

Grow! Get your garden growing and at the end of the season, harvest your seeds. Dry them thoroughly and store them in a cool, dry, dark place until you bring them back to the library. Make sure to label each variety. We do not accept GMO, PVP or Noxious weed seed varieties.
