LUSH Valley has two Community Seed Libraries in the Comox Valley that are stocked with seeds and resources for community growers. The first is at our Vanier/Tsolum Garden on Headquarters Road across from G.P. Vanier Secondary School, and the second is at our office & warehouse on Rosewall Crescent in Tin Town.
These community lending libraries aim to promote seed saving, increase agricultural biodiversity, and encourage community growing and resilience.
Libraries provide access to a variety of seeds including heirloom, open-pollinated, and locally-adapted varieties. Folks are encouraged to borrow seeds for free, then return some of theirs at the end of the growing season so that the library can continue to provide seeds for future seasons’ growers.
All you need is seeds! Visit one of our seed libraries or join the conversation on our Grow Food Everywhere group on Facebook.
LUSH Valley would like to thank our partners and community members for their generous donations.
