The Seed Library has re-opened at Merrickville Library!

The Library has a varied selection of vegetables, herbs and flowers that you can take home free! Seeds will be available throughout the growing season.

We are also still welcoming seed donations! If you have seeds to share we would be delighted to receive them. With your help we can make the Seed Library truly sustainable for our community.

Please label seed donations with:

  • Year collected
  • Type of plant and variety of plant (e.g., red cherry tomato; autumn beauty sunflower)
  • Any extra information that may be helpful (how deep to plant seeds, when to start them, amount of sun, soil, etc.)

Our report on the first year of the first year of the Seed Library is here: Click here to read the Report.

Seed libraries provide vegetables and herbs to support local healthy food supplies. They help promote and protect genetic diversity, local climate-adapted seed stock, self-sufficiency and community resilience through better food security.

The Seed Library is a joint project of Sustainable Merrickville-Wolford and the Library – with sponsorship from the Merrickville Lions Club.
