The Little Free Seed Library

Designed for community gardens, this little free library utilizes salvaged card catalogs to house seeds--making the library a multi-faceted exchange of agricultural resources. The library is cultivated by its community as people sort, store, exchange, and plant seeds. The structure of the library supports and illustrates the lifecycle vining crops: a built-in work surface provides space for seed sorting, an insulated enclosure provides seed storage, and a small test garden and trellis provide structure for growing. Flexible surfaces and an attic space provide customizable areas for community postings, tool storage, egg exchange, or mason bees.
