Welcome to Gardens for Humanity

Gardens for Humanity’s mission is to develop and share our relationships with Humanity and Nature through gardening, art, and education.

Founded in 1996, Gardens for Humanity has worked for ecological education to help give our children and all members of our community the values, tools and experiences needed to seek and regain balance with the natural world. Our many Programs and Projects throughout the years have helped to enrich our Verde Valley area from personal wellness to schools and communities.  Read more about what we do.

Seed Library News

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Verde Valley Seed Library is cancelled until further notice. If you are in need of seeds, please email the Seed Library.

It is time to get seeds for the Spring-Summer garden! The Verde Valley Seed Library is open each month on the first Saturday. There are lots of great veggie, flower & herb seeds available – FREE. Remember, the Seed Library works just like a regular library, check out the seeds, grow them, save some seeds to return for others to share. Check back here to find out when the next Seed Library will be offered. More about the Seed Library>>

Start a Garden and Grow your own food

At this time when we must act to reverse the climate crisis, and ensure our health, a garden is one of the most effective solutions. A garden that both gives us healthy food and regenerates the Planet restores our health and hope. View our video and resources >>
