About Us

The Seed Library Social Network includes members from around the world, many of whom have gone on to start their own libraries. The Network began in 2011 as a project by creators Devon Grissim, Elan Goldbart, and Andrew Whitman while working for the University of California at Santa Cruz, Demeter Seed Library. The project grew after Devon attended Seed Library School at Native Seeds/SEARCH in Tuscon, Arizona and met other seed library enthusiasts- including Rebecca Newburn of Richmond Grows, who now helps moderate our community.

Thank you for taking the time to explore our site! We hope that you will find that we are a very helpful, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic community. We look forward to connecting with you!


For more information please email Devon at info@seedlibraries.org.
