The Haliburton County Public Library’s Seed Library is a source for free, local, open-pollinated, pesticide-free seeds. People can take seeds for personal use, grow plants, and hopefully allow a plant or two to go to seed at the end of the season so that those seeds can be returned to the library to continue the cycle.
Our Seed Libraries are located within the Dysart, Minden Hills, and Wilberforce library branches. The amount and types of seeds available are subject to supply (donations) and demand; sometimes we run completely out. We ask people who are dropping off seeds to please try to include the name and cultivar of the seed, what township it was grown in, and how many years it has been grown locally.
The purpose of the seed library is to provide a service to the public which preserves plant varieties through propagation and further sharing of seed.
