The Innisfil Seed Library is a volunteer-run program in partnership with the Innisfil ideaLAB & Library with locations at the Cookstown and Lakeshore Branches in Innisfil, Ontario, Canada. It's free to "borrow seeds to grow" and open to everyone during library hours during the growing season (typically April to September). Seasonal workshops and events happen during the growing season to help borrowers harvest and return viable seeds back to the seed library. The Innisfil Seed Library is made possible and sustainable by its partnership with the Innisfil ideaLAB & Library and the seed donations and volunteer time given by our wonderful community. Get in touch to get involved!
