The Pima County Public Library has a similar project, whose mission is "to help nurture a thriving community of gardeners and seed savers. In addition to providing access to free seeds, we hope to help support gardeners and seed savers, from beginner to expert, through the process of growing, harvesting, and seed savings." Their website provides extensive information about the benefits of seed saving, and how to get started.
Looking for more info? Visit Richmond Grows, or read an article about a similar library in East Palo Alto. And of course, as you start your own garden this year, visit the Water Library! We've got a wide variety of gardening books to help you out.
