2021 Baraboo Seed Library

slide advertising Seed Library is open





The 2021 Baraboo Seed Library is open!

The Baraboo Seed Library is a project of the Baraboo Public Library and the Sauk County Master Gardener Association.


  • Help people to garden and grow some of their own food.
  • Encourage people to save seeds for plants that preserve plant genetic diversity, are locally adapted, and that respond positively to climate change.
  • Help people adopt gardening practices that are environmentally sustainable.
  • Educate people about protecting our pollinators.

Seeds in the Baraboo Seed Library have been donated by local gardeners or organizations, provided by the Baraboo Public Library, or purchased through a grant from the Sauk County Master Gardener Association.
