The prayer of the farmer kneeling in his field to weed it, the prayer of the rower kneeling with the stroke of his oar, are true prayers heard throughout nature.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

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 freezers 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 3851 samples of seeds.

14% permanently adopted through donations from 314 people and companies,
totalling $88847.45 so far. Adopt a Variety today!

Backing up 2374 varieties from 77 plant species.

What does it look like? Imagine 147.42 kg of seeds carefully dried and stored in airtight jars in big freezers!
