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

Our first in-person seed library since COVID will be held from 11am – 1pm on Saturday, March 13 at Garrison Park, which is a little park just northwest of the Cottonwood library. The seed Library will be outdoors and COVID precautions will be in place. As per health requirements of the City of Cottonwood masks must be worn. More about the Seed Library>>

Gardens for Humanity is looking for a Seed Library Coordinator.

As many of you know, the purpose of the seed library is to check out free seeds, grow them, save some seeds and return some to the seed library to share with other gardeners.  The seed distribution takes place once a month, March, April and May for spring/summer planting, then again July, August and September for fall/winter planting.  The coordinator should have experience gardening in our area. There will be compensation provided by Gardens for Humanity.  If you are interested, email seedlibrary@gardensforhumanity.org for further details.
