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. 

2023 Catalog

The 2023 Charlotte Seed Library Catalog is here! Pick up a copy at the library or click right here to view online.

All are tried and true heritage varieties of vegetable, herbs and edible flowers which are easy to grow and easy to save seeds from. We invite you to add some of these to your garden this year!

You don’t need to be an expert gardener to do this. We provide guidelines for eco-friendly gardening and successful seed saving so you can enjoy the fruits of your labors this year and have seeds ready for yourself to grow next year and to share with others.

Seed Library Requests

To request small packets of seeds from the 2023 catalog (no charge), email us at Seed@charlottepubliclibrary.org. We will let you know when your seeds are ready for pick up in the Library foyer.

Seed Library Coordinators Karen Tuininga and Linda Hamilton wish you happy garden planning!

Edible Landscaping with Dani Baker

If you want to create an edible hedge, an edible bed, a foundation planting or a forest garden, you will discover there are a variety of native food plants to choose from to fill your space. When placed in habitats that meet their needs, native plants tend to be well adapted to our climate and have few pest, disease or maintenance problems. This illustrated talk will describe the growth habit, preferred habitat, care required, food value, other uses, aesthetic appeal and propagation techniques for over 25 native perennial plants you can include in your edible landscape. The plants range from trees to bushes, groundcovers, roots and even vines.

Dani Baker will join us remotely for this timely presentation. Her work promotes acting as good stewards of the land and water resources entrusted to us on her farm in upstate New York and through presentations like this!
