Seed reserve: since 2011, we collected diverse seeds from gardeners in Aubervilliers and its surroundings. The list of available seeds to be exchanged or given will be published online soon and is available at Les Laboratoires. Don't hesitate to bring us seeds!

Plant reserve: some of the seeds or sprouts that we collected were planted in July 2011, in the first 12 "big bags" of the garden. In early 2012, we gathered many other species that were platned, as well as seeds, in the garden. The growing plants available (according to their growth) for exchanges during Open Door Wednesdays.
