AVRL Seed Library!

The AVRL Seed Library is back for 2023!

Gardening is known to have substantial health benefits in terms of physical activity and mental well being. On top of that, it’s just plain fun. The AVRL Seed Library began in 2016 with donations of seeds from local growers at the Lawrencetown branch. Since then, it has expanded to all eleven AVRL locations.

Anyone is welcome to drop by their local library and choose from the seeds available, free of charge.

Annapolis Valley Regional Library promotes the Seed Library as a great family project that leads to healthy food choices and sustainable communities. Watch our Starting Seeds video to get going!

We will be starting out with a selection of kale, peppers, salad mix, swiss chard, tomatoes, and radish. We wanted to get some “early planters” out to branches before it gets too late in the season.

Visit your local AVRL branch beginning early April and pick up some free seeds.

Let’s get this garden started!
