Seed Library Littleton is a joint project of the Reuben Hoar Library and Littleton Community Farm. In partnership, Seed Library Littleton seeks to build community through the sharing of bio-diverse seeds, provide education on seed saving techniques, and create a forum for discourse on the relevance of local food systems to the Littleton community.
Seed Library Littleton offers residents the opportunity to "borrow" heirloom and open-pollinated seeds for free. The goal is to create a self-sustaining source of locally-adapted seeds that grow well in our Littleton climate. Growers who "borrow" seeds will save and return new seeds after harvesting their crops. Those seeds will then be added to the collection for the following year's planting season. By participating in the library program, local growers create a culture of sharing and abundance, contributing to the sustainability of our community. Over time, the seeds become stronger and increasingly acclimated to the Littleton growing conditions.
