Summer Seed Repacking

To help ensure our community of fall gardeners have access to variety and abundance for the upcoming growing season, the Pima County Public Library Seed Library will host a late-summer seed repacking to process the seedy harvests from the community's spring and summer gardens. We invite gardeners and non-gardeners alike to stop in for a bit or stay for the whole time. Please join us for this great community gathering that hardly feels like work at all!
Seed; what it's all about!
