Seed libraries are sprouting across the globe!
Based on the model of a book library, seed libraries allow people to check out seeds to grow. At the end of a growing season, one checks in an equal or greater amount of the borrowed seed after harvest. This helps to locally adapt seeds and ensure a supply of viable, fresh seeds for all in the community.
Seed libraries are vital tools for taking control of our food supply. Are you a member of one? If not, use this map to find out more about a seed library near you! Search tip: searching by state will give you a great overview of seed libraries in your area!
