Have Questions?
Where are the seed libraries located?

Seed libraries are available at Colonial Heights, Galt-Marian O. Lawrence, Orangevale, Robbie Waters Pocket-Greenhaven, Southgate and Rio Linda libraries.

How much are the seeds?

The seed libraries are completely free of charge and available to anyone.

How can I help the seed libraries going?

Bring back heirloom seeds from what you produce to any of the seed libraries. We’ll use them to sustain a regional collection of seeds for others to enjoy.
