Start a Community Seed Project
Across the country, people are reclaiming seed as a public resource for local food and gardening communities. We encourage you to start your own community seed project, and keep this amazing momentum growing. Our Community Seed Toolkit resources are free, adaptable, informative, and meant to be shared, just like seed. Whether you are a beginner seed saver or long-time organizer of seed projects, these downloads will help guide you through the steps needed to develop seed projects that fit your community.
In addition to the resources below, we have a limited supply of physical toolkits to grant to school, community and other educational gardens that incorporate seed saving practices. These kits include wood framed seed screens, seed envelopes, and labels. If you have a community seed project and are interested in receiving a free kit, please fill out this
January 10, 2014: We are temporarily halting applications for physical toolkits. We will be continuing this program via a new nonprofit partnership that will expand the educational resources offered to community seed projects. We hope to have this relaunched in late spring of 2014. You can still download the resources below.
