Seeds from the Enderby Seed Library will be available at the Enderby Farmers' Market on May 1st, 2020. Seed must be pre-ordered, see details below.

Since the Enderby branch of the Okanagan Regional Library has had to close, the Enderby Library and Shuswap Seed Savers want to make the seeds in the seed library accessible to anyone who needs them. Green Croft Gardens, at the Enderby Market has kindly offered to act as a pick up point for people's orders.

The seed is free.  

It is seed that people have donated back to the library. 

We hope that people will try and save some seed, but our main concern at this time is that people have access to seed to grow their own food. 

How to obtain some seed:

 1. Look at the catalogue of seed available, below.

2. Make a list of seed you would like. 

3. Email: shuswapseedsavers@hotmail.com with your order and contact name by April 29th.

 4. Pick up at the Enderby Farmers' 

Market, May 1. from Green Croft Gardens' stall.

We have a limited amount of seed, so may not be able to give you everything you ask for. 

The seeds must be ordered in advance by email, there will be no extra seed at the market.  

Please note that the seed is donated so we have no guarantee of germination rates or seed purity.

Please consider learning about seed saving so we can replenish the seed library for 2021. There are many links to resources on this website.

Happy Growing
