CADL Seed Library

Saving and sharing seeds helps feed communities and preserves cultural heritage. We join with libraries across the state each year to promote growing and sharing seeds. 

Seed sharing (or 'seed libraries') are community projects which aim to provide free seeds and assist in sharing seeds saved by local gardeners.
