Borrowing Seeds

True To Seed ~ Coeur d’Alene Seed Sharing Library operates on an honor system. We trust that our members properly “check-out” the requested amount of seed packages. We ask that you respect that the seed library is a shared public resource and to take only what you will use during the season. We will have a fresh inventory available every year starting in February!

Steps to Borrowing Seeds

  • If this is your first time borrowing seeds use the iPad, located beside the seed catalog, to create a New Membership record. Simply select the “New Member” button on the Homepage and proceed down the webpage to make seed check-out selections. Already a member? Then choose the “Member Sign In” button to record seed check-out selection. Keeping records of our members and the seeds they check out helps us with inventory and grant purposes.
  • Choose your seeds. Please limit the amount you check out totaling Five (5) packets of seeds per month from any category. You can come back each month to check out more! True To Seed is primarily maintained February through October, but you are able to check out seeds year-round.
  • Grow your plants! We encourage you to save a portion of seeds to return to the Seed Library, although this is not a requirement. If you have any questions during the growing season please feel free to contact us by email
