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.
It’s winter outside, but the seed catalogs have begun to arrive and we’re already dreaming of gardening. We’re putting together our own 2021 collection of seeds to offer you, and we’re working out the details of a group seed order as well. Stay tuned for more information, and follow this blog so you’re sure to get the latest updates right in your inbox.
Thank you, and happy gardening!
~ Linda Hamilton and Karen Tuininga, Seed Library Coordinators

It was so wonderful to see gardeners coming together to share seedlings among themselves and to plant it forward to help feed our community.
Thank you for participating!
