Seed Library

Our Mission:

The ABQ-BernCo Seed Library was established to encourage a community of water-wise gardeners.

We aim to provide the access, tools, and skills to enable all Albuquerque citizens to participate in this community.

We provide free seed to Public Library card holders and offer free programs to foster all levels of gardeners through growing, harvesting, and seed saving -- all within our unique high desert environment.

For more information, please visit the Seed Library webpage:
