FREE Green Living Series:
FREE Seed Library
The Valley Permaculture Alliance (VPA) Seed Library aims to increase biodiversity of locally adapted seeds in the Valley of the Sun by providing open pollinated heirloom seeds, encouraging people to garden, and sharing knowledge of seed saving and permaculture. Come and select up to 3 packets of free seeds, and then once you harvest seeds you can return them to us as well. The Seed Library is held on the second Saturday of the month, starting in January 2015, at the Glendale Main Library’s lobby (5959 W. Brown St.) from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. For more details, check out Valley Permaculture Alliance Seed Library.
