Toronto Seed Library

We’re so proud to be working with the Toronto Seed Library to help Torontonians get growing! Stop by the Social Gardener Café anytime during our hours of operation to stock up on (totally free!) vegetable, flower, and herb seeds, informational booklets on seed starting, growing & saving, or to contribute your very own seeds to our ever-expanding seed exchange library.

ABOUT Toronto Seed Library

The Toronto Seed Library (TSL) provides free and easy access to viable seeds, so that as many people as possible can grow their own organic food. The TSL also encourages and enables people to save seeds through awareness, education, and community celebrations aimed at reviving seed saving culture.

Seed libraries work much like conventional public libraries, but focus instead on lending organic, native, heirloom and open pollinated seeds. People can visit the library to “borrow” seeds, plant the seeds in their gardens, raise the plant, let an appropriate amount go to seed and bring some of those mature seeds back to the library so that the collection continues to grow!

Learn more about how the Toronto Seed Library works and access information on how to get started with growing, here.
