Seed Library

Share seeds with your community at the ERL Seed Library! A free borrowing service aiming to cultivate a thriving community of gardeners and seed savers, while building and sharing knowledge, and fostering community resilience, self-reliance, and a culture of sharing.

‘Borrow’ up to 3 packets of seed for free!

Sow the seeds in your garden, nurture plants to maturity, and donate seeds back to the library

Grow your gardening knowledge at our regular, inspiring events and workshops!

The Seed Library is currently available at Belgrave, Boronia, Lilydale, Mooroolbark, Rowville and Yarra Junction Libraries.
