One of our primary endeavors is our Seed Distro project. This project began around 2005, when we packaged up some of our homegrown seeds to share at the Okanogan Family Faire. It was such a success that we continued to grow and package seed, expanding our project and reach.
Over the years, our program as expanded. We now grow, package, and distribute around 10k packages of heirloom, open pollinated, organic seed at no charge each year. We mostly work with food banks, schools, community gardens, and low income households, but really...anyone can request some free seed for their project.
People often ask us why we don't sell our seed? Basically, we just want more people to grow their own food. We want organizations to help people learn to grow food and provide garden space for people who have none. We want heirloom varieties to be preserved, and to encourage species diversity for the health of our planet and people. So, we give our seed away to those who need it and will make use of it.
