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. 

Even though the Seed Library will not be distributing heirloom seeds this season, we will still be offering regular Gardener Support programs, and plenty of on-line information which we hope will support and encourage local food producers. This new Seed Library blog is designed to keep you up-to-date on our programs and give you access to resources which provide practical gardening information. In addition, we will highlight timely related topics and opportunities. We hope you will visit the blog regularly, and follow the blog so that you know when we post new updates. Feel free to send your questions/comments/suggestions to us at: seed@charlottepubliclibrary.org.

Thank you, and happy gardening!
~ Linda Hamilton and Karen Tuininga, Seed Library Coordinators
