Visit our pioneering Seed Library located in the store, the first to open in Arizona! Seed libraries are an exciting new trend in the local food and seed movement where users can freely check out seeds, just like with books at a public library. After planting the seeds and enjoying the fruits of your labor, just leave a plant or two in the ground to go to seed. The resulting seed can the be harvested and returned, helping the library to grow abundant with seeds that are increasingly adapted to local conditions. Read about the growing seed library movement in this article by NS/S staff.
The NS/S store is home to more than your favorite local flavors, seeds, and gifts. We occasionally host very special events you won't want to miss! Follow or like our Facebook and Twitter pages for announcements, or sign up for our E-lert News blasts to stay informed.
