Orangeville Seed Library is an option for gardeners

As thoughts turn to gardening, be sure to keep the Orangeville Seed Library in mind. Sustainable Orangeville offers the seed library program at the Orangeville Public Library.

Launched two years ago, the Orangeville Seed Library offers free access to seeds and seed saving education during regular library hours. 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 currently looking for donations of swiss chard, kale, spinach, pumpkin, onions, leeks, melons, parsnip, collards and any kind of flowers.

Seed saving is something humans have done for over 10,000 years. Rejoin the ritual and start to save seeds and share the abundance in our community.
