More About Our Seed Collective

Now in our 10th year, we have grown far beyond simply providing garden seeds to our community. Over the years, we have built relationships with national organizations and local leaders, helping us learn to grow our own seed, organization, and community.

We save the very best seed from our fields, adapting it over time for our region. We spread our knowledge and passion through workshops, talks, and events, so that local growers can do that same.

We share the love and excitement of growing and eating from their own gardens, with youth, through partnerships with other community organizations.

Local youth gardens grow our seeds, reinforcing what’s learned in the classroom through the living laboratory of the garden. Some even grow for the school cafeteria!

We support local seed libraries and other community organizations with donations and education.

We are building a community-based regional and biodiverse seed bank!
