Seeding Ideas: a seed lending library

A resource guide for the MacRae Library's seed lending collection.


What happens if I cannot return seed saved from my plants?

If a borrower is unable to return saved seed to the library please consider a donation of a commercial seed meeting the library's criteria to help sustain the collection.


Can I borrow books from the MacRae Library?

Any Nova Scotia resident aged 19 or older may use their current library card from any university library, public library, bookmobile, or community college library from across the province to borrow materials from Dalhousie libraries.


May I have seeds shipped to me using Interlibrary Loan?

We are not planning to ship seeds or share them by Interlibrary Loan at this time. Seeding the idea is one of the goals of this project. We encourage interested people to develop the concept in their own communities. We would be happy to share our experiences.
