Seeds are one of the world’s most valuable resources in sustaining plant biodiversity, preserving cultural heritage, and feeding communities across the globe. Michigan is one such community, and the MI Seed Library Network serves to connect people interested in raising, eating, harvesting, and saving seeds. Rooted in community participation, this website is here to help curiosity seekers, growers, and seed libraries alike to navigate the intricacies of seed saving. The MI Seed Library pools community resources to provide networking opportunities, seed saving guidance, and educational resources as well as allowing room for both seed library and community growth. The MI Seed Library Network strives to promote sustainable agriculture, food systems, and social systems throughout the Michigan seed saving community so that seeds can continue to preserve cultural heritage and bring about positive change far into the future. 

We pleased to announce our One Seed, One State initiative for 2023. People all over the state of Michigan will be growing ‘Grand Rapids’ Lettuce together this summer! For more information please visit our One Seed, One State page.
