Seed Library Drop in - Come and check out this season stock and share your seed saving stories or any questions you have to help you on your seed saving journey. Ami will be at the seed library weekday mornings from Tuesday 18th of September to Thursday 27th of September from 10am to 11am.
Nelson's Elma Turner Library is home to the first public seed library in the top of the South Island. A set of drawers that is full of treasures. We have over 200 varieties of seed in our collection, mostly made up of edibles but with a growing collection of ornamentals, natives and a few exotic species.
Nelson Seed Library is run by volunteers and works on a self service, trust based system. It is available for anyone and can be accessed any time the public library is open. The idea is that people can take seeds away, grow them, take some for a harvest and save some for seed, which is then returned to the library to share with the rest of the community.
