ABQ-BERNCO Seed Library

ABQ-BernCo Library program to share and preserve climate-appropriate varieties of seed.

About the ABQ-BernCo Seed Libary

Seed saving is an ancient and important skill. It allows us to develop stronger seeds that are better adapted to our high desert climate, increase seed diversity, and play a vital role in local food production. 

The ABQ-BERNCO Seed Library was established in 2014 and has the mission to encourage a community of water-wise gardeners and seed savers. In line with the Public Library mission, we aim to provide the access, tools, and skills to enable all Albuquerque citizens to participate in this community. We provide free seed to 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. 

South Broadway

The ABQ-BERNCO Seed Library
is moving!

We are making a change to the location of the Seed Library.

Beginning Tuesday April 3, the Seed Library will be housed at the South Broadway branch.

This move is needed for several reasons:

  • A change in staffing at Juan Tabo has required a different approach to the curation of this collection.
  • Housing the Seed Library in a different branch gives more citizens a chance to utilize this unique collection and bring awareness to a new neighborhood.
  • Juan Tabo currently offers customers several special collections or services (Early Literacy Center, Ukulele Loan Program) and South Broadway does not currently offer a special collection.

If you have questions contact us at 
southbroadway@cabq.gov or 764-1742.
