About the Waterville Seed Library:
The Waterville Seed Library provides community members the resources to grow their own healthy, sustainable food at no cost. The seed library helps to reclaim seeds as a public resource and fosters a culture where local growing knowledge is easily shared. In concert with the Waterville Public Library’s purpose and mission, we celebrate human diversity in our community and strive to be inclusive and accessible to all.
The Waterville Seed Library is made possible through partnerships of a team of Colby College students currently led by Ketty Stinson, Colby Office of Civic Engagement, Waterville Public Library, Fedco Seeds, Waterville Creates, and Colby College Museum of Art. Special thanks to the Colby Office of Civic Engagement and the Ohanian-Szostak Fellows for Civic Leadership for project funding and support.
