Join the OCAD U Seed Library for a seed saving workshop led by OCAD U student Amanda Dong. This will be a hands-on workshop on how to collect and save seeds for coming seasons or to share with family and friends. Seed saving is an important practice in sustainable farming, it builds a stronger future for the community — keeps costs down, improves the yearly production/preservation of healthy produce, offers diversity and food security. Come expand your gardening skills and browse through our Seed Library!

The OCAD Seed Library, launched in June 2014, is an official branch of the Toronto Seed Library. The Toronto Seed Library (TSL) was started in November 2012 by the Occupy Gardens of Toronto Collective and students from the University of Toronto and York University. The TSL has grown into a strong cooperative made up of a diverse membership creating a free, self-perpetuating seed library system.
