Donate seeds...take seeds...share locally grown seeds suitable to our Manawatū climate!
The purpose of a seed exchange is to provide free acess to seeds for anyone wishing to growing their own kai, and to house donations from those who wish to share.
We invite donations of seeds for our seed exchanges, seedlings (vegetables and herbs) for planting in community garden projects, and we are a drop-off for clean garden pots in good condition (these go to Tipu Ora Seedlings who only use recycled materials.)
The three MFAN seed exchanges can be acessed at:
· The office of ENM 145 Cuba St
· Te Pātikitiki branch library, 157 Highbury Av, Ph 06 3572108
· Awapuni branch library, 96C College St, Ph 06 3567634
· Roslyn Library, 8 Kipling St, Ph 06 3579287
The first donation of seeds to kick-start the Palmerston North seed libraries were donated by Plant to Plate Aotearoa in 2020. Thanks Plant to Plate!
