Seed Libraries are a seed-lending program with collection of seasonal garden seeds available for free to the public. Seed libraries are a great way to provide free access to nutritious food via garden seeds. We also provide education at the library to bring the art of growing food and seed-saving to the public.
Garden Pool’s seed library programs in California and Arizona have been wildly popular–it’s time to expand our reach to where food security is needed most.
Garden Pool would like to bring the first Public Seed Library to Haiti to provide Haitians with access to a wide range of heritage seeds for nuts, herbs, berries, fruit, and vegetables. Establishing a Public Seed Library in Haiti will increase food-security, give greater access to a wider diversity of food, and provide much needed nutrition!
All funds will go directly to supplying seeds, hiring a Haitian agronomist to serve as a Seed Librarian, constructing the cabinet to house the actual seed collection, and computer access to maintain the database.
