Welcome

Welcome to new visitors!

As always, I follow the story that wants to be told with this project, and in 2018, it looks like some exciting chapters will be added.

Please Like my Facebook page, and follow me on Twitter at @libraryseedbank since there will be quicker updates there. I plan on rolling my older blog, Vanishing Feast, An Heirloom Solution,  into this one.

Thanks again for your interest and support.

Cheers!
Jeff Quattrone
Founder, Library Seed Bank


Project Mission
To establish seed banks at public libraries and community groups for free and open access to open pollinated plant seeds.
No GMOs.

How a Library Seed Bank (LSB) Works
A library member, or a community group member checks out a package of seeds just like they would check out a book. They grow the plants, collect the seeds, and return a package of the collected seeds to the library. That simple.

First Seed Bank for LSB
The first seed bank established by LSB is at the McGowan Memorial Library in Pitman, New Jersey. The Board of Directors approved it in September 2013, and the Seed Library went live on February 22, 2014. A second seed library opened in April 2014 at the Woodbury Public Library, Woodbury, New Jersey.

Please take a look at the Recent Post section on the right updating the work that LSB is doing.
