Why is the Seed Library named Tierra Sagrada?

The Thomas Branigan Memorial Library is home to a beautiful community mural called Tierra Sagrada or Sacred Earth, created by El Paso artist A.O. Carmona. In many cultures and agricultural traditions, seeds hold a sacred place. Indeed, like books, seeds hold a wealth of knowledge and are essential to our well-being. Tierra Sagrada reminds us about community care and sharing.
