The Adopt-A-Sonoran Desert Crop Program aims to preserve and promote native and regionally appropriate crops through seed-saving.
This program provides farmers and gardeners with free seeds to grow and harvest along with direct support from Ajo CSA staff. In addition to a wealth of tips and advice regarding adopted crops(s), growers will have access to gardening workshops, food demos, instructional videos, school-garden-based education and more.
The only thing that the program requires is that a portion of the daughter seeds or bulbs be returned to restock our seed library. These seeds will, in turn, be used to help another grower get started.
