The SMA Prep Seed Library is a free program committed to increasing our ability to feed ourselves healthy food by offering seeds  to our families and staff. Through the time-honored tradition of seed saving we wish to grow and create a culture of sharing and put the pandemic behind us!

  How does the seed library work?

 Check out (withdrawal) some seeds from the library to plant in your garden. At harvest time,  save the seeds and deposit them back in the library so our inventory is maintained or even enlarged!

 To help us get started, swap out seeds you   already have (new packets, seeds from fresh   produce or the produce itself) and submit at the   time of your withdrawal.

 Does the library have a catalog of available     seeds?

 It does! Use the link in Clever under Science     resources or go here to see a spreadsheet of   available inventory.

Got a request? email seeds@oursma.org

  See the Library Inventory here!

 How do I make a withdrawal?  Several ways:

  1. Download the form here, fill out, save and email to seeds@oursma.org  

  2. Email the required information directly to seeds@oursma.org

  3. Pick up a form in the office or from the WITHDRAWAL mailbox at parent pick-up.       Return it to the office, the withdrawal box or send with your cadet to room 211.

 Your seeds will be available to you at your choice   of locales- mailbox, front office or room 211. You   will be emailed when your withdrawal is ready.

 How do I make a deposit? Several ways:

  1. Drop off your seeds in the DEPOSITS mailbox at parent pickup or the front office.

  2. Send in your seeds (or whole vegetable) with your cadet to deliver to room 211.

Other ways to help out:

    1. Donate purchased seed packets, even if they           are expired.

    2. Send in your vegetable and the cadets will                harvest your seeds! Store-bought veggies too.

    3. And we always accept cash. :)
