Orangeville Seed Library
A Seed Library was launched in Orangeville in 2017, as a pilot project by Sustainable Orangeville and the Orangeville Public Library.
A seed library is a place where community members can get seeds for free and is run for the public benefit. Many seed libraries are open in public libraries. The Orangeville Seed Library offers free access to seeds and seed saving education. The goal is to support local food security and steward the region’s biodiversity. Locally-raised seeds are more resilient and better adapted to our soil and microclimate. The seed library is a way for hobby and beginner gardeners to share seeds and other gardening resources, and to connect with other seed savers.
The seed library is hosted at the Orangeville Public Library’s Mill Street branch.
