Seed Bank and Farm Tours
For a behind-the-scenes look into a bona fide seed bank, visit the 29-year-old nonprofit Native Seeds Conservation Center and Conservation Farm.
Visitors will get a rare opportunity for a one-hour tour of the facility and view the work that goes into preserving a collection of nearly 2,000 indigenous Southwestern seeds, both in the fields and in a state-of-the-art seed bank.
Discover the colorful history of the organiztion and the seeds it stewards, while getting a taste of its diverse educational programs in seed saving and sustainability. Tours take place on the second and fourth Fridays of each month, beginning at 10 a.m. at the Conservation Center
and 5 p.m. on the farm.
