Native Seeds/SEARCH conserves, distributes and documents 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. We promote the use of these ancient crops and their wild relatives by gathering, safeguarding, and distributing their seeds to farming and gardening communities.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Tucson, Arizona. We have distributed more than a million packets of seeds in our 30 year history. Gain access to the seeds of more than 400 varieties of important agricultural crops indigenous to the Southwest through our Seedlisting, retail store or website.
We envision 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.
We retail seeds and Native American crafts and local foods at our retail store, 3061 N. Campbell Ave., Tucson, Arizona. We retail and wholesale seeds through our seedlisting and website.
