We offer our parters a fully stocked Seed Library, when they join the Minogin Gitiganis society. Hosting a diverse array of Indigenous and settler species, these libraries support young and old learners and growers.
We source seeds from many generous seed donations and ethical suppliers including Urban Harvest.
We are always looking for new species of Indigenous and settler seeds to add to our libraries. Please consider donating seeds if you have some to share.
After eating delicious food grown from seeds in the Seed Library, growers are shown how to save and return the seeds to the library for the next season, the next gardener.
From seed to seed a library passes life from one hand to another. By holding onto the heritage and culture through traditional seeds, young people enjoy the gifts of their ancestors.
Setting seeds into the soil and caring for them and watching them grow leads to healthy connections with food and medicines from plants. Just spending time in a garden reduces anxieties and depression. Relationships made in a community garden serve well as we continue to learn to grow.
Feeding ourselves with food we’ve grown is an empowering experience. Sharing that food with others is even better. Growing Native food plants links us to this land in a very powerful way. It is an act of reconciliation.
