Maricopa Native Seed Library: Demonstration Gardens

Demonstration Gardens

There are several gardens you can visit to see seed library plants up close and personal! This can help you make selections from the seed library which you can conveniently access as the gardens are in the same locations as a seed library branch. These gardens also serve as seed sources for the seed library.

 

 

Red Mountain Campus, MCC
