[ARCHIVED] Thomas Branigan Memorial Library Launches the Fall Seed Collection

Tierra Sagrada Seed Library

Thomas Branigan Memorial Library announces the return of the Tierra Sagrada pop-up seed library for the Fall!

The Tierra Sagrada Seed Library, named after the mural in the Library’s amphitheater, was created to encourage Las Crucens to learn more about local food systems and regionally adapted community seed saving projects.  

The Fall collection refresh goes live on Wednesday, August 4, and will feature seeds ideal for the Fall growing season. Seeds will be available while supplies last.

Each library patron is allowed to check out seven packets of seed per season on their library card. There is no return date, but patrons are encouraged to learn how to save seeds and eventually make a seed donation back to the seed library. Visit and click on “Seed Library” for information and a listing of available Fall seeds.

Community members interested in donating seed will fill out a donation form to provide information on seed provenance and cultural history. Please help the library build a regionally adapted community seed-saving project! 

For information, or to place an order for seeds, contact the Reference Department at 575/528-4005 or

This information can be made available in alternate formats by calling 575/528-4102 or 575/528-4008 (TTY). Anyone who requires an accommodation for a disability to participate in this event should call the library at least 48 hours in advance at 575/528-4102 or 575/528.4008 (TTY).
