We have reached our capacity for donating seeds to the community for this season. We are so happy that we were able to send out over 4,000 seed packages of organically seeds grown at our seed garden on the St Stevens Church site.
We’d love to have some photos of your seedlings and gardens! Here's some photos from folks who picked up seeds from us this spring.
Many of you who responded to our offer of curbside seed pickup have asked
if we can accept donations online. We are happy to announce that you now can contribute to Community Seed Exchange via Network for Good by clicking this link.
