Maricopa Native Seed Library: Demonstration Gardens

Demonstration Gardens

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.



Red Mountain Campus, MCC

Garden at the Red Mountain campus of MCC

An ethnobotanical garden was 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. Many of these plants are also available in the seed library.

  • Find our project page on inaturalist that includes the plants that can be found in the garden. A downloadable field guide is available below:
