Seed Libraries and Seed Sharing

As you may have heard, the future of the Duluth Seed Library is in question. This library, which makes it possible for users to share the extra seeds they’ve collected at the end of the gardening season with others, is proving difficult to maintain in the face of laws requiring large-scale seed tests before they are sold or given away. This evening there will be an informational meeting about the seed sharing issue–if you are interested in finding out more about this situation, join the Institute for a Sustainable Future, Duluth Seed Library committee members, and city councilors at this meeting. It’ll be held at Peace Church, 1111 N. 11th Ave. East., on Thursday, December 11 from 7:15-8:30 p.m. Neighborhood gardeners and anyone interested in food access and sustainability issues are invited to attend and get informed about this important topic.

The issue will also be addressed at Monday’s Duluth City Council meeting, to be held at 7 pm in the 3rd floor Council Chamber at City Hall on 411 W. 1st St.
