All of the seeds in our collection are donated by individuals or organizations.
We accept the following donations:
Commercial seed packages, unopened or leftover. We prefer open-pollinated or heirloom varieties. Hybrids are okay but please label them since those seeds should not be saved. Please do not donate chemically treated seeds.
Seeds you’ve harvested yourself that are clean and dry.
Seeds for vegetables, fruits, or herbs.
Donate seeds anytime we’re open, all year long, at the Chandler Desk. Seeds should be dropped off in a sealed container such as a Ziploc bag or jar. Please include the following information when donating seeds:
Seed company/information on where the seed came from. If your seed has a unique story or history, include that too!
Year the seed was saved/packing date (usually on the seed packet)
Your name, phone, or email
