Charlotte Seed Library

This is a project of the Charlotte Library, to encourage and support our community’s home food producers and seed savers. It is part of a network of Seed Libraries and Seed Savers worldwide which promote the growing of heirloom varieties and keeping the seeds in the hands of the people. 


First time gardening, or want to start up a small garden in a new space?  

We have free Food Garden Starter Kits available at the Library, containing a few seeds each of a mix of popular vegetables and herbs, along with growing instructions.  Available in the foyer whenever the Library is open.

Charlotte Seed Library at the Senior Center — April 4, 2022

Coordinators Linda Hamilton and Karen Tuininga will visit the Charlotte Senior Center to explain how the Library’s Seed Library program works and how to join in.

Receive access to not only small quantities of heirloom vegetable, herb and edible flower seeds, but educational and technical support for growing at least some of your own food, in environmentally-friendly ways which promote healthy soil and support biological diversity, and learning to save seeds for yourself and to share with others.

All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.
