Lake Mac Seed Library


Cardiff Library is pleased to host a branch of Lake Mac Seed Library in partnership with Southlake Community Services. Lake Mac seed Library is a community seed sharing initiative that allows members to ‘borrow’ various fruit, vegetable and flower seeds from the library, and return some seeds at the end of their crop for others to enjoy.

Members of Lake Mac Libraries can now access the seed library from Cardiff Library. Seeds can be borrowed, planted and enjoyed. The idea is to leave a portion of the crop to go to seed, harvest and dry the seeds, returning them to the Seed Library for others to borrow and to grow.

All seed donations are welcome and can be returned to Cardiff Library or to the Southlakes Multi-Purpose Centre at Morisset. You can also sign up to be a member of Lake Mac Seed Library and be part of regular seed exchange events. 

Lake Mac Seed Library encourages the community to plant pollinator friendly veggies and herbs to attract native bees and other pollinators into our local gardens.  To support this, Cardiff Library is hosting a seed processing session that will focus on packaging pollinator friendly seeds that will be available as part of the Lake Mac Seed Library at Cardiff Library. See below for more details and events.
