Seed Library at the Milwaukee Area Technical College: Home

We're in the news! 

"Seed libraries are a thing in the Milwaukee area. Here's how you can check them out."

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

 

We had a great 2022 season, serving over 450 southeast Wisconsin households! 

190 types of seeds, and 2200 seed packets for Milwaukee area residents’ green growing.

Looking forward to reopening the Seed Library in March 2023.

Thank you to our 2022 Seed Donors. Click on the photos below to learn more about them.

Welcome to the MATC Seed Library!

The MATC Seed Library is a joint educational project of the MATC Libraries Mequon campus and the MATC Landscape Horticulture program.  

Here's How it Works: You may "borrow" seeds from the Seed Library during each Fall and Spring ordering season by filling out our Google Seed Library Order Form. There is a limit of 5 packs of seeds per household. Seed packs include planting and growing instructions. Pick up is at the MATC Mequon Campus.

You are invited to collect seeds at the end of the growing season, and bring some back to the Library during the Fall semester to be shared next year. This is optional. 

There are no overdue fines! This program is free and open to the public in the Milwaukee area.
