The Maricopa Native Seed Library is in the process of creating two demonstration gardens to support the seed library. These gardens will be open to the public so that people can view and learn about the plants and then come into the seed libraries to make seed selections if they choose to do so. These gardens also serve as seed sources for the seed library.
1. Red Mountain campus of Mesa Community College-an ethnobotanical garden has been planted in Fall 2020 that includes a wide variety of trees, shrubs, grasses, cacti and succulents that have medicinal, food, ceremonial and other human uses.
2. Scottsdale Community College-the existing native gardens at SCC will be supplemented with plants from the seed library so that visitors can view the demonstration garden to help them make selections from the seed library. We are also in the process of adding more moth and butterfly host plants to the existing gardens.
More information and pictures will be posted here as the work continues.
