Fairfax Community Seed Exchange Now at the Fairfax Library

Community Seeds

Sustainable Fairfax has partnered with the Marin County Free Library and 2014 Branson Environmental Action Network to create a Community Seed Exchange.

The Community Seed Exchange is a free seed library that supports our community with locally-grown, pesticide-free, non-GMO seeds. This is an important program to preserve and maintain agricultural biodiversity, develop seed stock that is well suited to our climate and inspire our community to share in the magic of growing edibles, flowers, herbs and natives. In the last century, over 94% of our seed varieties have been lost. “Genetic Erosion” refers to the loss of genetic diversity between and within populations of the same species. The Seed Exchange decreases our dependence on agro-business, helps to create viable possibilities for watershed appropriate plants and is an educational resource.
