All About Your Garden – Seed Swap and Water Wise Workshops

Spring planting season is here and so is Sunset Library's signature event - Seed Swap! Our Water-Wise Workshop series returns at the end of February, too!

Visit the Sunset Library on Saturday, Feb. 3 between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. for Seed Swap. Share seeds, seed starts and plant cuttings with your neighbors. Meet local gardeners, Master Gardeners and other community members with the expertise to help you start or maintain your desert garden, conserve when you can and more! You can participate even if you do not bring seeds. Envelopes and markers will be provided. Everyone and all ages are welcome! There will be a prize raffle to win a desert gardening book!

Can't make it to Seed Swap, or do you have more questions about your garden? Sunset Library has a new monthly program: Ask a Master Gardener! Drop in the third Saturday of the month between 10 a.m. and noon to get answers from volunteer master gardeners. You can even bring your problem plant!

This spring we're partnering with the Chandler Water Conservation Office once more for the Water-Wise Workshop Series. Join us to learn valuable tips for your home garden and yard that will save you water and money, too!

Seeds are free, cannot be reserved and availability is determined by supply and season. There are no overdue fees associated with seeds and you are not required to return anything. Simply stop by the Sunset Library, take a look at what’s available and bring your seeds up to the Information Desk for check out.
