We now have TWO Seeds of Cerrito seed libraries in El Cerrito !

It is on the table to your left as you enter, and is open anytime the Recycling Center office is open. The El Cerrito Recycling Center is located at 7501 Schmidt Lane (the center is at the end of the road). The lobby is at the front of the main building.

The Cerrito Seed Library located at the Public Library on Stockton Street opened August 14, 2014. It is located to the left after you enter the library. The library is located at 6510 Stockton Street. Check this website for hours:

The philosophy of the seed libraries is to provide seed to anyone who wants it -- there is no membership required, and you are not expected to donate seed unless you want to.

Each library has a 4 drawer wooden library card catalog that is full of vegetable, herb, flower and California native seed.
