Seed Library of Pima County Public Library – Grand Opening January 28
|Saturday, January 28, 2012|
10am-5pm at Joel D Valdez Main Library, 101 N Stone Ave, Downtown Tucson
Pima County Public Library invites you to the grand opening of its Seed Library and introducing the new Pima County Public Library Bookbike!
The Seed Library is a collection of edible, decorative, and herb seed varieties that community members will 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 will become self-sustaining and most importantly, the seeds will become super seeds–strong, resilient, and well adapted to Arizona’s harsh climate.
Special guests will offer presentations and demonstrations about planting, cultivating, and harvesting your own food. Find out about resources for experienced gardeners, as well as ideas about getting started with your own patch. Get a look at the Bookbike and hobnob with bicycling enthusiasts.
Talk with folks from local seed and garden organizations – Native Seeds/SEARCH, Sustainable Tucson, Marana Heritage Farm, Community Gardens of Tucson, Tucson Organic Gardeners, Arizona Native Plant Society, and others.
