Seed Library Square

Copper Queen Seed Library

The Copper Queen Seed Library allows patrons to “check out” vegetable, flower and herb seeds to plant in their home gardens. The goal of the seed library is to form and encourage a learning community centered around the saving and sharing of seeds in our unique desert climate. Patrons are encouraged to harvest and return seeds from their healthiest plants to ensure the sustainability of the project.
