Glasgow Seed Library is a collaborative project, instigated by Glasgow Community Food Network (GCFN) and the Centre for Contemporary Arts Glasgow (CCA). It is owned by the growers of Glasgow, based in the CCA and run by Rowan Lear.

Glasgow Seed Library is currently cared for by CCA and a steering group of individuals and community organisations from across the city and beyond. This group includes representatives from Glasgow Community Food Network, Woodlands Community Garden, Propagate, Glasgow Outdoor & Woodland Learning Group (GROWL), North Glasgow Community Food Initiative, Milton Community Garden and Food Hub, Glasgow Allotments Forum and Gaia Foundation's Seed Sovereignty Programme.

If you'd like to get involved or join the next steering group meeting, please email [email protected].

You can find out more about Glasgow Seed Library and its seed-saving events and field days at the CCA's website.

Get involved:

We invite everyone interested in resilience and food sovereignty to get involved by: 

  • Growing plants to save seeds 
  • Sharing seeds with the library 
  • 'Borrowing' seeds to grow more plants to save more seeds to share! 

The library is hosted at the CCA where seeds can be deposited or taken out.
