Seeds of Diversity's Canadian Seed Library is a collection of seeds that backs up the work of our member seed savers and Canadian heritage seed companies.

As a not-for-profit project, we store back-up samples of Canada's rarest seeds (and some not so rare) in low-humidity frozen storage to keep them viable and available for future gardeners and farmers. These are your seeds, your collection, brought to you by the work and donations of hundreds of people.

Now storing 3666 samples of seeds.

15% permanently adopted through donations from 314 people and companies,
totalling $91922.45 so far. Adopt a Variety today!

Backing up 2370 varieties from 77 plant species.
