Discover the world of saving and sharing seeds! 

The 81st Ave. Branch, Cesar Chavez Branch Library, Dimond Branch Library, Melrose Branch Library and the African American Museum and Library at Oakland (AAMLO) have Seed Lending Libraries! 

These FREE urban seed projects are committed to increasing the capacity of our community to feed itself wholesome food by means of education that fosters community resilience, self reliance and a culture of sharing. 

The Seed Lending Library is supported by volunteers and donations.
