ABQ-BernCo Seed Library

ABQ-BernCo Library program to share and preserve climate-appropriate varieties of seed.

About the ABQ-BernCo Seed Libary

Seed saving is an ancient and important skill. It allows us to develop stronger seeds that are better adapted to our high desert climate, increase seed diversity, and play a vital role in local food production. 

The ABQ-BernCo Seed Library was established in 2014 and has the mission to encourage a community of water-wise gardeners and seed savers. In line with the ABQ-BernCo Library mission, we aim to provide the access, tools, and skills to enable all Albuquerque citizens to participate in this community. We provide free seed to card holders and offer free programs to foster all levels of gardeners through growing, harvesting, and seed saving—all within our unique high desert environment. 

The ABQ-BernCo Seed Library is housed at the Juan Tabo Branch. Contact us at juantabo@cabq.gov or 291-6260.
