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.
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.
