Nuestra Tierra Learning Garden is an educational oasis located at our main branch in Tucson. Featuring vegetable and herb gardens, a greenhouse, a chicken coop, and worm and compost demonstrations, the garden is frequently visited by our clients, employees, and community members. Nuestra Tierra provides fresh produce for our Farmers' Markets and serves as a demonstration garden for organic desert food production and rainwater harvesting.
The mission of the Community Gardens of Tucson is "to create and support accessible community gardens with Tucsonans of diverse experience levels, abilities, and cultures in order to educate, foster wellness, and enhance the environment for people, plants, and pollinators." Useful resources include the planting guide and FAQs.
The PCPL Seed Library is a collection of open-pollinated and heirloom seeds that you can borrow to plant and grow at home. By saving seeds as a community we help create local seed stocks that are better acclimated to our unique desert climate and which support an abundant and genetically diverse landscape. We support gardeners from beginner to expert and help you learn how to grow, harvest, and save seeds.
