Welcome to the Desert Seed Resource Center!
We're excited to be dedicated to working with growers, agencies, and other organizations to improve the availability of local seeds and plants for the desert southwest.
Thank you to all of those who supported up during the Bulb-Tastic Blitz.
Your donations, likes, shares, and comments on Facebook remind us that the work we are doing is valuable and important.
Together we raised over $600 for Desert Seed Resource Center's programs and operations. We have so much work to do to protect our seed amplification plot and the seeds we hope to see produced there. These seeds and plot near Safford will continue to thrive and share their knowledge with us thanks to your support.
Thank you for your contributions and enjoy your plants!

This plot continues to inform us how to best grow native plants. Once we know the optimum growing strategies (think seed packet instructions) we can collaborate with farmers to grow enough seeds for restoration.
