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.
Happy planning – and planting!
