TSL COVID-19 Response

*PEAS SHARE the following update with your networks and help us spread the word, especially among folks who may not be connected through social media. Our first priority is getting seeds out to indigenous, black, and other marginalized growers full of knowledge and skills but empty pockets!

As most of you know, due to COVID-19 concerns, all Seedy Saturdays and other seedy events are cancelled or postponed indefinitely. In addition most of our seed library branches are unfortunately closed until further notice.

Those that are confirmed to be closed are specified on our website via this link HERE. If you prefer to visit a branch that is not confirmed to be closed at this time, please contact the branch via e-mail or telephone before physically making a trip there.

In order to meet the current demand for seeds, we are still able to share seeds through:

  1. No-contact porch pick-up from Little Italy area (College & Grace)
  2. No-contact bike delivery within the downtown area
  3. Delivery through Canada Post within Toronto (including Etobicoke and Scarborough)

There is no fee for any of these methods. However, to help us continue providing absolutely free seeds, we ask that folks who are able to, PEAS DONATE GENEROUSLY to cover your own costs as well as the costs of others who are unable to donate at this thyme.

Monetary donations can be sent through Paypal via this link HERE, by e-transfer to torontoseedlibrary@gmail.com or by cheque mailed to:


Toronto Seed Library

Toronto, ON

We also need SEED DONATIONS!! If you are able to package them in small envelopes (homemade are grape!) and label them with the variety and year saved that is ideal. Bulk seed donations are also most welcome! Seed donations can be made through no-contact porch drop-off in Little Italy area (College & Grace), no-contact bike pick up in the downtown area or by mail to:

Toronto Seed Library

TO REQUEST SEEDS: please send an email to torontoseedlibrary@gmail.com with:

  1. Your seed needs
  2. Your preferred method of delivery (or pick up) and your address if applicable (If none of the options are feasible for your situation, let us know your requirements and we will do our best to make it work). Please ask only for what you need, and include some alternatives to your first choices. Listed below is what we currently have available, and we will do our best to update the list as seeds continue to circulate. Peas keep in mind our supplies are currently limited and we expect to receive a high number of requests. We will do our best to get you what you ask for in a thymely manner. Peas bee patient as we adapt to this new model.
