The Great Library Seed and Plant Swap
Every year in September Christchurch City Libraries hosts the Great Library Seed and Plant Swap. Come along to your local library and bring any seeds or seedlings you'd like to swap. Don't have anything to swap but would like something to take away and grow? That's okay too.
This page has information about seeds, gardening and the locations and dates for seed swaps at libraries around Christchurch.

They have kindly donated native seedlings to our libraries to get The Great Library Seed and Plant Swap started!
As well as seeds, plants, and seedlings we had useful growing and gardening information available at our seed and plant swap sites.
