Seeds to Share

NB We are no longer taking orders for these seeds. as the last remaining Seed Clinic is fully booked. Instead, please watch for the Interactive Seed Cabinet coming back to Gibsons Library in the next week or two. We will have the seeds on this list available in the seed cabinet as long as quantities last. Thank you. Leonie Croy  6:30pm, 26th February, 2021

"BORROW ~ SAVE ~ SHARE" The Gibsons Seed Sharing Library is co-ordinated by volunteer Sunshine Coast Seed Saving Collective members Rhonda Jackman and Leonie Croy in partnership with the Gibsons & District Public Library, located at 470 South Fletcher Road, Gibsons. The Seed Sharing Library is available to all seed savers on the Sunshine Coast. If you wish to become a member, or have any questions, please contact Leonie leoniecroy@gmail.com

This spring 2021, in lieu of the usual interactive seed cabinet, we ask members to browse the list of available seed (see below). Note the seeds you want and email Leonie with your choice/s (just the variety name will suffice). She will arrange a time for pick-up at one of our Seed Clinics to be held at the Gibsons Public Library in February. Many seeds have been generously donated by BC Eco Seed Co-op www.bcecoseedcoop.com , Salt Spring Seeds www.saltspringseeds.com and Seeds of Diversity Canada www.seeds.ca
