The Southeast Regional Library, 775 N Greenfield Rd, has partnered with Garden Pool in offering a seed lending program. The Seed Library is stored in a hand-crafted card catalog located near the entrance of the Southeast Regional Library. Any Southeast Regional Library card holder can check out up to three seed packets per month, plant and donate seeds back to the Seed Library at the end of the growing season.
The Seed Library focuses on edible plants that are well suited for the Arizona climate and terrain. There will be future free classes at the Library on seed starting, seed saving and how to cook from your garden.
Patrons can access the Seed Library during regular Library hours Monday through Thursday between 10 a.m. to 9 p.m, Friday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
