Welcome to the MAXwell Gardening Tool and Seed Library

 

At the Maxwell Garden library  you can borrow gardening tools and books. We also have free seeds that people share or save for us and some free gardening materials. We also love a good chat about growing food and we are happy to help you with advice and ideas.

HOW CAN YOU JOIN?

1. Click on “Create Account”, enter your details and click on submit.

2. Browse through our Inventory to find what you need and reserve tools or books. This video explains the reservation process step by step. 

3. Collect your items from the garden. The seeds and other freebies will be available for you to browse when you come in person.

4. Only the first time you come in to collect/choose items we will ask for a £1 annual membership fee, a proof of ID and to sign an agreement to make sure terms and conditions are clear. This will confirm your membership of the MAXwell/ Library.

Check out our Grow Dundee blog and join the Facebook group for advice, ideas and help from fellow growers. 

 

CAN YOU HELP US?

We welcome donations of working garden tools, books or materials. We'd also be grateful for any economic donations to help cover some of our costs - like this online platform or PAT tests of electric items.

We are looking for volunteers for Thursdays who could help manage collections and returns for library members, tool maintanance and organising skillshare workshops in the future. Please get in touch if you are interested. 

WHEN AND WHERE TO FIND US

We are opening the library just on Thursdays 10:00 - 17:00 for now. Access is via North Wellington Street (Black gate / red brick wall)
