Definition of Seed Library

A seed library is a community-based organization, often times housed within a public library, that provides the public with access to free open-pollinated seeds, supports local food systems, builds seed saving literacy, and promotes locally adapted plant genetics. Seed libraries represent an urban adaptation of one of the few 10,000 year old traditions humans have continuously engaged in — the saving and sharing of seeds with each other.
