The Cesar Chavez Seed Lending Library is a free urban seed project committed to increasing the capacity of our community to feed itself wholesome food by means of education that fosters community resilience, self-reliance and a culture of sharing. Anyone is welcome to come in and check-out seeds. No library card is needed, just sign-out for them. We then ask that you let some go to seed after planting them and return some of these next generation seeds for others to borrow. The best part is that there are no fines if you are unable to return the seeds!
