Seed Libraries

Seed libraries, seed swaps, and seed saving community gardens are just some of the community seed initiatives that happen year-round right across Atlantic Canada. These initiatives are an awesome way to connect with friends, neighbours and the wider community to learn about seed and get your hands dirty in the garden, while also helping to keep seed in the public domain.

ACORN has developed some resources to support community seed organizers and seed librarians:

  • ACORN’s “Seed Library Education Kit” includes a large format (36" x 52") poster;  ~50 take-away (5" x 7") postcards; and a PowerPoint presentation with talking points. Please click here for more information and to order materials. ACORN a conçu une Trousse éducative sur les bibliothèques de semences afin de continuer à appuyer ses partenaires qui gèrent des collections de semences communautaires. Celle-ci inclut une grande affiche (36 po X 52 po), 50 cartes postales à distribuer (5 po x 7 po) et une présentation PowerPoint (envoyée par courriel) accompagnée de points de discussion.

  • The Seed Libraries bulletin, in 3 editions is available from ACORN’s online resource library.
