Native Seeds SEARCH

Native Seeds/SEARCH (NS/S) is a Tucson-based non-profit organization working to conserve, distribute and document the adapted and diverse varieties of agricultural seeds, their wild relatives and the role these seeds play in cultures of the American Southwest and northwest Mexico.

For over 25 years, NS/S has preserved and promoted the rich legacy of agricultural biodiversity in the arid Southwest.  The organization operates a seed bank, a 60-acre conservation farm in Patagonia, AZ, and a gift shop on north Campbell Ave. to make the seeds and other mission-related items available to the public.

NS/S envisions the Greater Southwest as a place where farms and gardens, kitchens and tables, stores and restaurants are brimming with the full diversity of aridlands-adapted heirloom crops; people are keeping the unique seeds and agricultural heritage alive; and the crops, in turn, are nourishing humankind.

Native Seeds Search is located at 3061 N. Campbell Avenue, Tucson, Arizona
