TSL COVID-19 Response

*PEAS SHARE the following update with your networks and help us spread the word, especially among folks who may not be connected through social media. Our first priority is getting seeds out to indigenous, black, and other marginalized growers full of knowledge and skills but empty pockets!

As most of you know, due to COVID-19 concerns, all Seedy Saturdays and other seedy events are cancelled or postponed indefinitely. In addition most of our seed library branches are unfortunately closed until further notice.

Those that are confirmed to be closed are specified on our website via this link HERE. If you prefer to visit a branch that is not confirmed to be closed at this time, please contact the branch via e-mail or telephone before physically making a trip there.

In order to meet the current demand for seeds, we are still able to share seeds through:

  1. No-contact porch pick-up from Little Italy area (College & Grace)
  2. No-contact bike delivery within the downtown area
  3. Delivery through Canada Post within Toronto (including Etobicoke and Scarborough)

There is no fee for any of these methods. However, to help us continue providing absolutely free seeds, we ask that folks who are able to, PEAS DONATE GENEROUSLY to cover your own costs as well as the costs of others who are unable to donate at this thyme.

Monetary donations can be sent through Paypal via this link HERE, by e-transfer to [email protected] or by cheque mailed to:

Toronto Seed Library
℅ Church of St. Stephen-in-the-Fields
103 Bellevue Ave.
Toronto, ON

We also need SEED DONATIONS!! If you are able to package them in small envelopes (homemade are grape!) and label them with the variety and year saved that is ideal. Bulk seed donations are also most welcome! Seed donations can be made through no-contact porch drop-off in Little Italy area (College & Grace), no-contact bike pick up in the downtown area or by mail to:

TO REQUEST SEEDS: please send an email to [email protected] with:

  1. Your seed needs
  2. Your preferred method of delivery (or pick up) and your address if applicable (If none of the options are feasible for your situation, let us know your requirements and we will do our best to make it work). Please ask only for what you need, and include some alternatives to your first choices. Listed below is what we currently have available, and we will do our best to update the list as seeds continue to circulate. Peas keep in mind our supplies are currently limited and we expect to receive a high number of requests. We will do our best to get you what you ask for in a thymely manner. Peas bee patient as we adapt to this new model.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Some of our seeds may have been packed for as far back as 2017 and are still viable, but we have not tested recent germination rates.

Late Nov. Events

Nov 28 Earthrythm Festival
This day long event that blends, Art, Music, Dance and Wisdom into an interactive immersive, and expressive experience to honor the Earth, and our connection with her. The Toronto Seed Library will be tabling throughout the day and volunteer & board member Maria Kasstan will be a part of the panel discussion at 5pm . For more information visit the event’s website by clicking here.

Nov 28 Toronto People’s Assembly on Climate Justice
This event will take place from 9am-5:30pm at the University of Toronto’s Haultain Building at the rear of 170 College St and is FREE. As part of a global call for actions on climate justice, the Toronto People’s Assembly on Climate Justice 2015 will bring together activists, organizations, people from all walks of life for an open forum to discuss community-based responses to the climate crisis. This event is also a direct response to the 2015 United Nations Conference of the Parties talks on the climate in Paris ( November 30th to December 11 th), and seeks to find alternatives outside of government and industry initiatives, which have served the interests of the rich, rather than people today or our collective future.

The Toronto People’s Assembly on Climate Justice will feature workshops, panels, and assemblies on themes include analyzing climate issues through lenses of race, class, migration & war, gender, health & food justice, local issues of municipal accountability, divestment, anti-capitalist alternatives, and indigenous land rights, sovereignty & solidarity. Click here for more information.

Nov 30 Seed Exchange Training & Discussion
The demand for neighbourhood seed exchanges is growing fast! We’re offering free training sessions for anyone interested in running an event that helps people gain access to heirloom, non-GMO seeds. Join seedy veterans for a mock seed exchange and discussion about what makes a successful event. You will leave training feeling confident in your ability to effectively organize seed exchanges in your community.

If you have a strong interest in seed saving, growing, and/or community building send an email to [email protected] Please tell us briefly about your interest in and experience with gardening and why you’d like to attend the training. If you cannot attend this training, there will be other opportunities early in the new year in other locations across the city! For more info call 647-438-0038 or visit www.torontourbangrowers.org

Branch update: Our Daily Bread Food Bank branch in South Etobicoke will be closing. However, we are in discussions with another organization in South Etobicoke to host a branch — expect an announcement or update soon!

April Showers Bring Seeds & Flowers

Spring is kind of in the air, and new Seed Library branches are popping up with the dandelions and tulips! Three new branches are opening (or have opened) in April and every Saturday this month we’ve got an event with the Toronto Public Library. This year we are trying to focus a bit on Native Flower and Plants — make sure to check out the revamped branch at the High Park Nature Centre, its main focus is Native Seeds.

More event details below including a meet-up to discuss a possible Spore Library and a talk about the Botanical Gardens with Chief Librarian Brendan Behrmann.
