Seed Library of Pima County Public Library

Seed Library

The Flowing Wells Library is a Seed Library location.

Pima County Public Library's seed lending library is a collection of edible, decorative, and herb seed varieties that community members may borrow, use to grow plants at home, and then return a portion of the seeds they harvest at the end of the season. Over time, the seed library's collection has become self-sustaining and, most importantly, the seeds are becoming super seeds—strong, resilient, and well adapted to Arizona's harsh climate.

More about borrowing from and contributing to the Seed Library of the Pima County Public Library.
