Seed library

a card catalogue with labelled drawers for a variety of seed packagesThe UTSC Seed Library is an initiative encouraging people to plant and share seeds in order to promote community engagement and sustainability by providing students, faculty, and staff, with opportunities to learn about and practice gardening and urban agriculture. It is located on the main floor of the UTSC Library (across from the washrooms) in the Academic Resource Centre and it is open to the public during the library’s opening hours.

People can come and 'check out' seeds at no charge. Just take what you need and leave the rest for others. Please save some seeds from what you grow and donate them back to the library to keep the cycle going!

The UTSC Seed Library was developed in partnership with UTSC Edible Campus.
