Do you have seeds to donate?
Seeds contain stories, recipes, and a way of life that is passed from one gardener to the next. By offering a collection of heirloom seeds to grow, harvest, and return, we hope to inspire a community of growers who learn to save seeds for continued and future use. We hope to encourage the discovery of nature thru gardening. By continuing the time-honored cultural tradition of seed saving, we hope to inspire a sense of heritage and a community of giving among local farmers, neighborhood gardeners, and anyone interested in growing food, herbs, and flowers.
“The seeds being distributed may not meet germination or varietal purity standards prescribed by the state seed law. Patented seed or varieties protected by the Plant Variety Protection Act will not be accepted or distributed without permission of the certificate holder.”
