Seed Library is Here!

Just in time for Spring!

seed library

The Prince Albert Seed Library is a collaborative effort between
Prince Albert Parkland Permaculture Guild and John M. Cuelenaere Public Library

What is a Seed Library?

A seed library is a library that lends seeds instead of books. The concept is that one would take out seeds in the spring with the intention of saving seeds and returning some of their saved seeds in the fall. Gardeners grow the plants in their garden and at the end of the season, they let a few plants ‘go to seed.’ From those plants, they collect seeds to return to the Library to replenish its inventory.  Seed savers are also encouraged to gift their own varieties to the seed library for other people to try. The seeds that are available will be ones that can be grown locally, and are acclimatized to our local growing conditions.

For more information please visit the Seed Library page on our website:

* Enable authors and others in the community to receive guidance and advice from an established writer; and
* Engage the public in learning more about the process of writing, editing and/or publishing.

Anyone wishing to make an appointment to see Lynda can do so by contacting her at 306-764-1968 or they can email her at lmonahan@sasktel.net.  Lynda will be available for consultation with individuals requiring assistance on personal writing projects and will plan public readings, literary activities, and programs that will focus on serving and supporting the amateur writing community in Prince Albert and area.
