The Seed Library

Partnership between the Pender Island Public Library

and the Gulf Islands Food Co-op

 

 

 

 

 

Launched in February 2021 the seed library is housed inside the Pender Island Public Library. The program aims to provide sustainability through abundance, education, and of course growing plants from seeds handed out to the community.

This program was made possible through a partnership between the Pender Island Library with The Gulf Islands Food Co-op.

The Gulf Islands Food Co-op is a non-profit Co-op that connects the Southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia, Canada (Pender, Mayne, Saturna and Galiano).

Mission:  facilitating inter-island cooperation in order to create new resources and practical supports, for our amazing Southern Gulf Islands food producers, valued eaters, and local food sustainability!

This includes welcoming Indigenous producers from these Coast Salish traditional territories, and also following up on key priorities of the Southern Gulf Islands Food & Agriculture Strategy.
