Add to the seed library
When the growing season is over, you can harvest your seeds and return a portion of them to the library to help keep the seed library self-sustaining. We are now accepting seed donations at any Mississauga Library location (with the exception of Hazel McCallion Central Library).
The Seed Library accepts any seed donations, but the following are preferred:
- Heirloom, open-pollinated, and non-GMO seeds
- Edible, decorative and herb varieties
- Less than 4 years old
Please ensure your seeds are clearly labelled with the type, year, and the location they were collected from in a sealed envelope. All returned seeds will be isolated for 24 hours before being sent out.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in learning more about the seed library and how to harvest your seeds.
If you are interested in more information or resources about gardening and seed saving, ask us your question below.
