I founded and maintain our seed collection and would love to answer any questions you might have. Please don't hesitate to reach out.
We provide seeds for vegetables, herbs, LA-county native plants, and flowers. All CSUDH Library users are welcome to freely take seeds from the collection. If you're successful in growing them and able to return some, please do, to help keep our seed library renewable. Our collection helps promote food and climate justice within our community. Adjacent to the seed cabinet you'll find a curated collection of seed and gardening related books.
The CSUDH Seed Library prioritizes heirloom or open-pollinated edible plants that are well-suited to growing conditions in the Los-Angeles Metro Area (USDA Hardiness Zones 9 & 10). We also strive to provide culturally relevant seed types, recognizing the diverse populations and gardening knowledge of our neighbors across the Southern California region and their plant traditions.
