About our seeds

Our initial seed bank has come from very generous donations from the Seed Saver Exchange, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, and Connecticut Master Gardeners Association.


About Us

It's finally here! New Canaan Library invites you to come grow with us!  We have started a seed lending library.   The idea is simple—borrow seeds from our library (don't worry-- there won't be any fines), let some of the plants go to seed, and bring the next generation of seeds back to the library. Whenever the Library is open, gardeners can check out seeds for free. 

Saving seeds saves money, creates tastier food, and keeps the vegetable genetic pool more diverse and healthy.


Gardening Programs and Workshops

Saturday, September 13 at 10 a.m.:  Seed Saving Workshop with Eric Frisk.

This is the workshop you have all been waiting for!  Learn how to save seeds from your garden and bring them back to the New Canaan Grows Seed Library and Exchange.  Then we can plant them all next year and perpetuate the fun through gardening, and eating tasty fresh produce.  REGISTER HERE

Meanwhile, check out our fantasitic program recaps!
