“Facinating store with live music in an class bank building”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

A variety of unique heritage seeds for flowers, herbs, vegetables and some bare-root fruit trees, all presented in a classic 1925 commercial bank building. Live cello music on a Sunday afternoon. Helpful staff to give advice. Park a few blocks away near a downtown city park.

“A very Cool Place”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

I was amused that the seed bank was in an old bank. The place was very charming with some interesting garden tools, books, and of course seeds. Viewing the different seeds was an adventure, oh my so many kinds. I liked the variety of heirloom seeds, the colors were delightful. The staff were helpful and friendly. We had a four year old with us who enjoyed all the garden tools and the pretty seeds. Worth the visit.

“Heirloom Seeds”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Loved this place. The only place to get a large selection of heirloom seeds. Its an old bank building, how perfect. Still a bank, but of seeds and wonderful gardening tools, books, and some local organic products.

“clever play on words”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

the Seed Bank is an amazing collection of hundreds (maybe thousands) of seed varieties for sale. The staff knows everything about gardening, and are very helpful. The building is an actual historic bank building, which makes for a clever play on words. Worth a visit.

“Great use of an old bank”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

The seeds offered are an incredible assortment of almost any seed you might want. I was particularly interested in the huge variety of tomato seeds. The building actually used to be a bank. It's a wonderful re-incarnation for this historical landmark.
