Seed Library

Seeds and seed packets from the Brock University Seed Library

The Brock University Seed Library offers free seeds to staff, students, and community members to “borrow” and plant in their home gardens. The cycle functions like a library where participants can borrow and return seeds free of cost. The goal of this Seed Library is to protect genetic diversity in our food system and promote public access to seeds.

The James A. Gibson Library is pleased to partner in the Seed Library initiative. Visit the Ask Us desk to choose fruit and vegetable, flower and herb seed packets.
