Looking for source this late winter for just 4 +/- affordable Straw Bales, "preferably" an organic source.   Also, may be looking for some Wood Chips without having to take on an entire load & am willing perhaps to travel to pick them up.  Thank You

The Seed Library is housed in the Arizona Federal Credit Union Bank so is closed when the bank is.  Normal hours are 9-5 Monday through Friday.

We are starting work putting together a Seed Stewardship Curriculum.  Keep watching for further notices.  We hope to start the program in early fall.  Any suggestions of what you might want covered--drop us a line!!!

Hi all you seed peeps!  Great news!  We have some really wonderful new seeds that will be ready for distribution in January.  Come see our new permanent location at 5151 N.19th Avenue, Phoenix, 85015.  Come in the bank, go up the staircase to your left and turn right at the top of the stairs.  You will see the Seed Library there in an oak bookshelf.  We will be back at Glendale Library on January 11th from 12-3pm.  See you there.

Hello fellow seed harvesters.  Some of your favorite plants are probably getting ready to go to seed, ripe for harvesting.  Think about contributing some of your precious seeds to the Seed Library. We have been gathering quite a selection but always need more locally grown seed.  Seal them into a paper envelope or packet with as much information as you can. (see seed donation info) and drop them off at the VPA office.  Thank you so much.

Please call the office before coming in for seeds, to make sure someone is there to assist you.  Hours of operation usually 9-5 Mon-Thurs, Fridays 9-3.
