Ottawa Wildflower Seed Library

The Ottawa Wildflower Seed Library is a grassroots organization that promotes gardening with native plants to provide food and habitat for bees, butterflies, insects, birds and other wildlife.

We are built on three pillars:

Provide free access to seeds
Teach people about gardening responsibly
Ask seed recipients to reciprocate the gift of nature

Just like a regular library, the Ottawa Wildflower Seed Library provides free seeds and plants that people can “check out” to grow in their own gardens. Once the plants have flowered and gone to seed, people can “return” some seeds to the library to make them available for other people.
